Grantee on the Road: Anique Dovi Afi

Lomé-based AMA grantee Anique Dovi Afi is currently in Toubab Dialaw, Senegal to participate in “Du geste à la danse,” a 2-month series of workshops (April 6-June 13) on traditional and contemporary African dance at the École des Sables.

The 22-year-old Ms. Dovi Afi is a dancer and actor with five years of professional experience. She has been a member of Brin de Chocolat dance company since 2013. Committed to perfecting her craft, she has participated in a number of professional training programmes and is currently enrolled in a modern jazz course at the École de Danse de Souza in Lomé.

“Du geste à la danse. Le danseur interprète” is the first module in a new 3-part professional training program being offered at the École des Sables. Focused on the development of interpretive dancers, the workshops will provide the 20-25 participants (all aged between 18 and 25) with the tools necessary to develop their interpretation, improvisation and choreography skills. Ms. Dovi Afi looks forward to the prospect of building new bridges with other young African dancers and strengthening the connections between Togo and the continent.

AMA wishes Anique a terrific stay in Toubab Dialaw!
