Challenging the status quo. We like inventing new ideas and bridging gaps! The stimulus for Afri'fusion Intensive came from the love of strengthening ties with our culture and the desire to elevate the quality of dancers within our community. We offered skill refinement and development by providing tasters into other styles that may have never been tried or considered.
