The U.S. Embassy is the lead sponsor of the 2016 DESTINO Dance Company Annual Performance.

The performance at the Alliance Ethio-Française removes prejudices and stigma related to differently-abled people as well as highlights the power of dance for social inclusion.

 The show featured four contemporary dance performances and involved 30 dancers with all type of abilities, including a performance by local dance company Ethiopiawinet. 

This event marks the beginning of a series of programs organized with the support of the U.S. Embassy to honor “International Day of Persons with Disabilities” on December 3.
