Review Extracts
“With propulsive rhythms and cultural terrain the company and its students captured the spectators. They entered the room with a procession of singing, chanting, dancing and drumming… Both Nzinga’s children and adult students radiated with pride and beamed with enthusiasm as they pranced and frolicked for the energized audience.” Jo-Ann Hamilton, 2013.

HOMOWO, African Dance Masterclasses @ Oval House Theatre 2002.
“Classes attracted dancers with experience in a variety of styles… Artists inspired a sense of welcome & unity distracting any feelings of intimidation sometimes experienced by dancers learning new styles. Students were taught to be relaxed & intuitive with movements & understand meaning in relation to dance. I would recommend if you get the opportunity to participate in one of Nzinga’s classes, the dance spirit will reach out & inspire you to do more!” extract from HOTFOOT – Association of Dance of the African Diaspora magazine issue 3 Summer 2002
