The Year of Return: Retracing the Malagasy Maafa
This trip of a lifetime will be led by Dr. Balzac, a Malagasy University Professor, and facilitated by Madagascar Experience founder Mihoby. This journey that spreads across 6 towns and 2100 km, will unearth the seldom - if ever - talked about story of enslaved Malagasy people and their migration to the new world.
Dance as a Cultural Lens: An Introduction to Antandroy & Vezo People

This course culminates in a community-wide performance of dances learned.
