"We learned how to create choreographies and to become excellent interpreters. We also emphasized different traditional dances; I was teaching Rwandan traditional dance.
[...]
The highlights for me were the creation processes about how to make my own solo, [as well as] all the courses. These were very important to me because I want to become a choreographer.
[...]
I see my future as being a performer, choreographer and teacher. [I intend to] continue to specialize the 2 coming years in the follow up courses in Senegal."

"The first day of the workshop was a highlight because it allowed me to truly measure and appreciate my dedication as a professional dancer. Every day was a day of discovery (through site visits and cultural outings), exchange and learning, all of which took place in an atmosphere that was at once cheerful, welcoming, and serious. The workshop series was an enriching personal experience. It allowed me to learn the different contemporary and traditional African dance techniques and also to become familiar with dancers and teachers from different backgrounds.
