The Slyboots School of Music, Art and Dance Head Quarters is hiding in plain sight in Buffalo, and has proudly served the music, dance and art communities in WNY and CNY over the past decade, on the sly. 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 2013 marked the start of the Slyboots School’s 7th 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 560,000 lives inspired, on the sly.

Tickets are $25 per day, or $75 for a three-day pass presale, or you'll be paying $50 a day or $100 for a three-day pass at the door (Ages 12 or under are free!) for Slyfest 12. Pick up tickets at any Slyboots class or at Terrapin Station, Buffalo Ironworks, or Funk N Waffles!
