Research and Information Centre for dance in Africa

African Dance is widespread and steeped in tradition. Its influence is far-reaching (one can view it and analyse it from various points of view).

Unlike other forms of self-expression, dance is rarely analysed and documented. We will try to fill this gap.

We intend to derive a dance–forum to promote its documentation and analysis. Furthermore, to derive a system of literary appraisal and design an interactive chart of “Dance Africa”.

Our effort is mainly directed at traditional dance, which is at present in danger of dying out, but in time, will also include contemporary works and companies.

This website doesn´t claim to be exhaustive. We are committed to its constant improvement. To this end, please help us with your comments, observations and own material.
