About Us


Our Story

For over a decade, AfrodanceNYC has been at the forefront of promoting and empowering Afro dance artists in the vibrant city of New York. As a non-profit organization, our mission is twofold: to provide job opportunities for talented Afro dance artists and to showcase the rich artistic expression of Africa's diverse cultures to the people of New York City.

Founded by a group of passionate Africans who now call NYC their home, AfrodanceNYC has been a driving force in bridging the gap between continents, fostering cultural exchange, and celebrating the beauty of African dance forms. Through our dedicated team of experienced instructors and performers, we have been teaching dance and educating people about our heritage, shedding light on the richness and diversity of African cultures.

Our vision has evolved, and we are excited to embark on a new chapter in our journey. We aim to create a strong and supportive community of African dancers, uniting individuals who share a common passion and commitment to promoting African artistic traditions. By providing job opportunities, organizing workshops, and hosting performances, we strive to empower Afro dance artists, enabling them to showcase their incredible talent and contribute to the cultural fabric of New York City.
