The Slyboots School of Music, Art and Dance Head Quarters is hiding in plain sight in Buffalo, NY and has proudly served the music, dance and art communities in Upstate New York and beyond over the past decade, on the sly.

First and foremost renowned for their international world music and dance education tours, workshops and private instruction, this grassroots operation has been rapidly gaining a name in the Upstate New York Festival scene with their annual fundraiser, SLYFEST– a multi day extravaganza featuring live music, art installations, workshops, YOGA, swimming and even a Hot Air Balloon.

As the Sly family grows from their humble roots in Fredonia, NY to engage larger communities in the Upstate New York area, we have been simultaneously branching out to address issues in our global village and utilize world music as a vehicle to unite people from around the world and manifest positive social change in our communities and beyond. September 2015 will mark the start of the Slyboots School’s 9th US tour with the SAAKUMU Dance Troupe from Ghana, West Africa- performing at colleges and universities, clubs and schools all over the country.
Slyboots has helped to expose an estimated 40,000 students to cultural arts programming EVERY year since 2006– that’s 360,000 lives inspired, on the sly.
