“Some of the group members were forced by situations back at home that led to them not being able to study further as tuition fees were not there from our parents. We decided to come together, came up with an idea of starting a dance group with a hope that dancing was one day going to change our lives,” wrote Kavuma.
Kavuma said that the group had a vision to change the lives of the youth in their village.
“This is a family backed group. We are a dance group that is the first to break records in our country as we are the first group to get two international nominations, the same month we went international and came back home as winners,” wrote Kavuma.

Kavuma said that the group has worked with Ugandas International artist Eddy Kenzo’s official videos.
“We were featured in a song called Bibawo. We are grateful for the opportunity he gave us not only for the exposure but being part of his music official music videos made us to reach more people international. The support he is giving us is amazing as it is good for our career and the dance journey,” wrote Kavuma.
