The five day programme included; learning traditional African Dances, as well as more contemporary styles. There were storytelling sessions, costume making and movies celebrating dances of the African Diaspora!
Supported by BEMIS and Visit Scotland's Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology we held the Let's Dance Carnival on Friday 21st July. This celebration event showcased what the young people created, as well as performances from Divine Tasinda, and storytelling from Gift Amu Logoste to celebrate our African Diaspora heritage.
To finish off the summer school, on Saturday 22nd July we performed as part of Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival.
