The Royal African Cultural Group was established in 1999 by Vida Kwofie to introduce the community, students and others to African music, dance and culture.
The mission of the group is to develop and encourage the understanding of African cultural values, and to introduce the community, children, and students in local schools to participate in African music and dance.

The Group will provide interactive activities such as workshops, lectures and performances in community centers, and after-school programs for the community.
The Royal African Cultural Group has the advantage of collaborating with groups from the Continent of Africa such as the Ghana Dance Ensemble at the University of Ghana, and the Performing Arts Workshop (PAWS) in Accra, Ghana.
