This was an amazing experience hands down. I was asked to join the faculty of the first Sweet Bird Productions SDI! This production company warehouses the Bad Boys of Ballet, which is the dance company I currently work for. I spent a week in Maryland teaching and instructing a group Junior and Senior dancers. I was asked to come in and teach traditional West African dance and also afro carribean dance styles. The kids absolutely loved it. This was such a heartwarming experience for me. I started dancing in a traditional west African dance company, Dundu Dole Urban African Ballet. Where I trained in all cultural styles of dance starting at age 9.
The kids were so excited for my class everyday and the bright smiles as I walked in the door always hyped me up. I was on faculty with some amazing artist and it was truly an honor to be asked to teach in this intensive. I look forward to next years adventures and returning for this intensive next year.
The kids killed the end of the week showing and some how I ended up on stage with them. I left with a very happy heart!
