Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Cuban Shows

The Company use elements of Afro Cuban and Afro Brazilian dances in our choreographies. From the religions of Santeria (Cuba) and Candomble (Brazil) the Orixá/Orishas are deities. Each has a character, a dance, a colour and a song.

We also offer specialist workshops in schools, adult classes and privates for all ages in these styles. Please enquire to book school projects or shows for your event. 

The dances of the Orixá/Orishas are a major component of our teaching programme and with language, geography and history elements are a fantastic study for educational purposes. 

We also offer dance and language workshops.
