THE CAUSE ?

Historically in Africa, cultural history, literature, knowledge and wisdom were passed on to succeeding generations through performing arts, especially dance. Dance is a valued facet of traditional African culture. Ensibuko is using a social and entrepreneurial approach to offer quality and certified courses in dance education.

THE ACADEMY?

Ensibuko is using a social and entrepreneurial approach to  dance education. We help young people 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 Academy covers mastery in dance technique and movement, dance knowledge, choreographic interpretations and a sense of creative entrepreneurship through the dance art. This course consists of weekly theoretical and practical dance classes, Research assignments, 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..
