Laylas Dance & Drum Celebrates Black History Month with the Harlem Globetrotters

As part of the The Long Island Arts Alliance "Back in the Spotlight Series," Waldo Cabrera followed the Layla's Dance and Drum West African Dance group as they prepared for their first big, in-person performance after the COVID pandemic.
