Who we are

Monica is pretty much always in motion. She studied jazz, contemporary and capoeira dance before stumbling on African-inspired dance in a street parade in South America in 2006. It was love at first step, and since then she’s studied and performed a range of African dance forms, and taught in community and educational settings since 2011. She also works in creative community development at Toi Ora Live Arts Trust and is a certified yoga teacher. She is passionate about helping people find new ways to move, and is a firm believer that dance is for every-body!
To have Monica lead our African dance workshops is an absolute honour, she’s simply amazing!
