Princess Yaa is an original Dance Theatre Production created and directed by Mesha Millington. The story follows a girl that has embarked upon womanhood. Her parents, the King and Queen have allowed her to select a suitor to marry. After turning down many, she finally falls in love with a Prince from a far away land. Her journey to his home takes her on an emotional ride where she learns so much about herself, her now husband and the spiritual realm. The story is told through several dance styles that include Contemporary, Modern, African and Hip-hop.
