The Dance Workshop is an annual dance convention created by Kafayat Shafau-Ameh ‘Kaffy’ which takes place in various locations around Africa to inspire, train and mentor dancers in the art of dance, the business of dance and how to establish a profitable career within the entertainment industry. The project fuses dance with entrepreneurship and cultural exchange to provide a well-rounded educational experience for professional dancers in Africa, as well as establish the need for structure and discipline required to pursue a career in the performing arts and the entertainment industry.
Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder and provoke conversations that matter.
