Paris-based Georges Momboye is choreographer from the Ivory Coast whose repertoire includes the award winning Afrika! Afrika! Trained in African, jazz, classical and contemporary dance, he has studied in various schools including Alvin Ailey in New York. This highly acclaimed choreographer visits London in June to lead a weekend of workshops in traditional Ivorian African Dance and Contemporary African Dance.
A single watchword: lets us express emotions through dance, choreography, interpretation, development gestures, body and a pedagogy that will fetch far, deep within us. Georges Momboye visits and revisits our emotions thru dance which can be, sometimes happy or sentual, through the adolescent games or just vertically and horizontally.
Georges Momboye teaches around the world with the same passion: the clarity and precision of his teaching helps give African dance acclaim. This is a rare opportunity to study with a renowned master of traditional African and Contemporary African Dance.
All workshops will be accompanied by live musicians.
