ABOUT

Over-articulated and barely translated, the Afro-Urban Dance Experience is a network of Pan Africans who have dance flowing through their blood, sweat and tears. Repping various regions of the continent and Diaspora each dancer has their own style, vibe & flow, and together are passionate about sharing our collective stories through dance. The Afro-Urban Dance Experience is a project of Afro Urban Society, an organization that fosters a creative community of brilliant artists and culture workers dedicated to celebrating the unique expressions of Urban Africans through performance, production and community activation.
