THE CAUSE ?

We promote meaningful dialogue, understanding, and cooperation through the arts, especially dance. Dance is a valued facet of traditional Ugandan culture. Ensibuko is  using a social and entrepreneurial approach to offer quality and certified courses in dance education.We use cultural dance therapeutically, to create safe spaces where individuals share more freely. Ensibuko is one of the only organization in Uganda that explicitly encourages equitable inter-generational dialogue.

THE ACADEMY?

Ensibuko Academy is a 2 year certificate course with a social and entrepreneurial approach in  dance education. We help young dancers to develop a professional training in Ugandan traditional dances and urban dance aspects. We revisit our roots and create an experiment lab with the present to shape the future. Ensibuko works to create a generation of versatile and informed dance artists. The course covers mastery in dance technique and movement, dance market, choreographic interpretations and a sense of creative entrepreneurship through the dance art. This course consists of weekly theoretical and practical dance classes, Research programs, Creative labs, Fellowships and presentations.

WANT TO HELP?

Our approach to dance education is innovative and unique, and has resonated with our beneficiaries in ways that traditional strategies have not. We believe that our dance education project can reach a greater number of people and develop more professional and effective workshops and trainings if we expand through outside funding and other partnerships..
