Peter London Global Dance Company Stays Local in Little Haiti

Afro-Caribbean folklore entered Peter London's soul at age six, and never left.

In the hilly Trinidadian countryside, the then-youngster would take part in religious ceremonies often led by his family members, who were strong keepers of the Yoruba-derived faith and drumming. From there, his love for dance sprouted into classical dance that led him to New York, where he would become one of the most sought after dancers for such power houses as Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, and José Limón.
