Afro Dance
7 Week
Short Course & 
Performance

A message from Gracious, the course instructor:

This Course is organised in collaboration between Kwabo Events and Passion Studio.

I, (Grace) am so eager to meet you, dance with you and share my knowledge of afrodance. I am also over the moon to bring back my favourite event: FLAHMOBS! Dancing in public spaces with community is at the heart of African dances and Kwabo events so let’s do it the authentic way! I hope you are ready because I will have max of energy and good vibes to share!

KWABO THE MEANING

Kwabo means ‘welcome’ in my mother tongue, and to me it means you belong, you fit in and I see you! Thus this class welcomes individuals from all levels, walks of life and ages. Participants are invited to immerse themselves in upbeat music from West & Central African countries including Ghana, Togo, Ivory Coast, Congo, and Angola in this joyful, dynamic introduction to modern African dances.

Throughout the 7 weeks, we will get ready to perform on the 28th of May at Kwabo Africa Day Celebration at the Arts Centre Melbourne. Kwabo Africa Day Celebration is a jam packed day of dance, music, workshop, and performances to celebrate African excellence, richness, culture and vibrancy.
