Dance Life Festival

Monday 29/06 – Sunday 05/07/2020

Dance Festival © Goethe-Institut Kenya This week of dancing is making dance easily accessible at no cost through live performances and dance classes from professional dancers based in Nairobi. Whether it is Ballet, Seben, Hip Hop, Afrofusion, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Ragga or Traditional Dance that is your style, we’ve got you covered! This year’s first edition of the Dance Life Festival is unpacking the dance scene in Nairobi, presenting a compass to navigate the current dance scene in the city. The one-week festival is mapping out the Nairobi territory, putting up signs that lead to dance studios, dance groups and individual dancers and choreographers, to cultural spaces and organizations that accommodate and promote dance as an art form, a social and cultural practice.

We encourage you to dance with us! Learn how to dance various styles in one of the ten online classes and experience professional dancers through their weekend performances.

All Classes will be held on Zoom. You can join each class using the link below:
