Creating during the pandemic has been crazyyy...but...I started discussions and research on another layer of racism, called colourism. I've set up a small solo piece and am looking for funding to get this dream fulfilled.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Basil Pinnock

Dance 2 Salsa Academy

This course (Kizomba Teacher Training) was absolutely fantastic, you need to check Iris and her team. It was awesome.

It's the best Kizomba/Semba teaching course in the country. I feel like I understand what Kizomba and Semba is about now.
