This year’s Afro Dance Holiday Workshop is coming up in Lagos next week. Organised by Zinarts Agency an International dance company. It offers services to the International and Biggest Artist Worldwide from the likes of Afro sensations to Davido, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage to International Power House such as Drake, Rihanna, SteffLon Don, Yxng Bane and many more.
According to the organisers, after the workshop attendees will be able to perform for World class artists which will be directed by Choreographer to the Stars, Ezinne Asinugo, affectionately known as Zizi. She added that “Zinny after many projects in Lagos the lack of recognition for the talent of Nigeria Choreographers and Dancers brought to the entertainment industry on an international level, using Zinarts will bridge the gap.”
The Afro Dance Holiday (Lagos 2018) project: #ADH2018 is the ultimate Dance Weekend Camp for Dancers and Dance Lovers. ADH is a platform to put the Nigerian dance industry on a Global pedestal. The Nigerian Dance industry as of now, suffers recognition both locally and internationally. Zinarts will be bringing five International teachers and six local Ones for this dance camp collaboration.
The international teachers have worked in big projects like EMA Awards, Brit Awards, VMA’s, X factor, Olympics amongst others. Zinarts is expecting the international dance students to learn at the Afro Dance Weekender to train and mingle with our local dancers and choreographers. The company hopes to spread the different styles of Afrobeats originating from Nigeria and Global as the western entertainment industry, infuse elements of Afro fusions in their style of music and Dance, examples of such include ‘Freak Me’ by Ciara featuring Tekno and ‘Ganja Burn’ by Nicki Minaj.
Learning and imparting Knowledge never goes out of fashion. Learning and growth is a fundamental part of every human being’s existence says the organisers. The Nigerian Dance industry is mostly involved in booking jobs and doesn’t place priority on training, that Is why the company has decided to give a – three-day intensive Dance training From African Choreographers and International Choreographers. The project solely aimed to promote Nigeria local talent. The workshop weekender is open for the public at a reduced rate of 12 Classes over three days at N5000.
The ‘Afro Dance Holiday’ project also sets to bridge the gap between the Western Dance communities through the one Language of ‘Dance’. The event will be showcasing our incredible social lifestyle with Night outs, cultural Delicacies and African Art Exhibitions, market and Museum visits and many more.
