DiverCity Dance

DiverCity Dance

2Funky Arts were awarded support from the Youth Opportunity Fund, to develop young people’s awareness of Afro-Centric dance forms in celebration of Black History Season 2010.

Young people from across the city participated in Breakdance and Contemporary workshops that ran for 10 weeks in the run up to the show, set up by 2Funky Arts.

As well as those who participated in the workshops, the DiverCity Showcase brought together amateur and professional dancers, performing a diverse range of Afro-Centric dance styles from African dance to Capoeira.

The show was held at the Peepul Centre and chronologically showcased these styles. A narrative was provided by our host Carol Leeming, to give the audience an insight into the history of the performed styles. The show was vibrant, loud, inspiring, fierce and informative to say the least.
