Background  Dunia collaborated with the Dance Trust Zimbabwe’s Dance Foundation Course (DFC) in Harare to create a piece called Baobab Shadows based on stories from the lives of children in Africa. This successful creation was enriched by the songs and experiences of DFC students, many originally from inner city homes.

 

In Zimbabwe we found these youngsters willing to dance all day long, with unflagging motivation to create a show, full of energy and enthusiasm. We hadn’t originally planned to bring them to Belgium but their amazing dedication and ability is something that deserves to be shared with a wider public for the benefit of these amazing artists but also for the benefit of those who will be fortunate to see them perform.

Objectives To give these students a professional experience (6 performances) and the opportunity to work with top quality dance, yoga and Pilates teachers in Belgium, visit schools and exchange with students like themselves. We also feel that this is a great opportunity for people based in Europe to enjoy the exquisite singing and dancing of these extremely talented young artists.
