The Gambia Dance Factory Vision is to build a Ballet, Contemporary Dance and Performing Arts Centre where the best ballet dancers in Gambia can be nurtured, developed and showcased.
Africa has shaped the artistic world for centuries especially in the areas of dance and music.
The Gambia Dance Factory takes pride in these forms of art and is committed to their preservation, development and promotion.
The aim of The Gambia Dance Factory is to add to this heritage by creating a world-class standard for ballet classes, lessons, courses, training, tuition, performance, education and expression in West Africa.
Where We are Right Now
It’s been an activity-filled journey for The Gambia Dance Factory and despite the absence of a much-needed dance studio some of our success stories include;
- Creation of Jobs
- Transforming lives and reviving hope
- Creation and development of a new industry
- Professional tutoring in ballet and other dance
The Gambia Dance Factory will add value to the societal and cultural development of the Gambian arts community, and will deliver ballet workshops and courses in a dynamic way.
By unifying and advancing the performing arts, offering free community service to other foundations and schools, the center will use ballet to present life-changing messages that will re-orientate families, children, and youth, re-channel and help develop personal skills they can use positively in life.
The Gambia Dance Factory further aspires to be a hub of creativity where our community not only finds a place to escape, be inspired and be educated but also to be engaged in ballet and contemporary dance
Our hope is to use ballet to challenge mindsets.
