Dayna has lived many places, moving from Ohio to Massachusetts and Washington to Vermont; however, she has called Broomfield her home since 2009. She loves the amazing sense of community here and has the honor of working with neighbors in need every day as the Executive Director of Broomfield FISH (Fellowship in Serving Humanity)! Dayna has spent her entire life in the helping sector. She served as the Executive Director of Connecting Youth in Vermont for nearly 20 years, then at Project VOYCE in Denver for 3 years, before finding FISH. Her family is scattered, but she lives with her husband, Ken, and her dog, Sami. Dayna spent two decades of her life studying West African music and dance, and has traveled extensively in Senegal, Mali and Guinea. She is excited to participate in DWTBS so that she can raise money for the Community Foundation and also share a culture that she holds dear. “The Foundation’s impact is incredible and so far-reaching! They support so many critical causes and help countless people lead happier, healthier lives!” Dayna will be performing a traditional rhythm from Guinea with her friend, teacher and Master Dancer, Sidiki Sylla.

Sidiki Sylla was born in Conakry, Guinea and at the age of nine began entering dance competitions. He later joined one of the two top ballets in Guinea, “Ballet Djoliba,” and toured extensively as a principal dancer. He has performed across multiple continents and in 1997 moved to Burlington, Vermont to help instruct and lead “Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater.” He is coming to Colorado especially for this event and will also be holding community classes.
