Uganda’s oldest dance festival, Dance Week Uganda, kicks off today at the National theatre.
The festival celebrates and promotes the art and diversity of dance and provides a platform for the development of dance by nurturing professionalism and innovative choreographic practice. It fosters connections between Ugandan and international artistes, and encourages presentation of new collaborative work.
This year's edition will run for only two days, unlike the previous year's three-day programme. People who will be attending the festival can expect four performance recitals per day.
Babu Dance Project, Atomic Creaturez Crew and Kyuuka Youth Outreach will perform on day one; while Lites Dance Crew, Spot Lite Crew, Clay Dance Company and Mambya Dance Company are lined up for the closing night.
