Welcome to EAF

The word Ensibuko means “The Origin” In relation to Ancient Africa; history, literature, knowledge and wisdom were passed on to succeeding generations through performing arts, especially dance. Dance is a valued facet of traditional Ugandan culture. Ensibuko is using a social and entrepreneurial approach to dance education. We use dance to influence social change, to mirror the issues in our world, the realities of life and give them a new narrative.
