Ayanjo Dance Company

...promoting culture is our core value

    Our Goal

    Culture as the mother of custom and tradition are the identity of any group of people, community, clan or company. This identity is gradually fading out within some circle, generation and children all in the name of religion, vernacular, barbarism and misinterpretation. While most emulate, adapt, adopt and react to the borrowed culture as the best and undiluted. The beauty of our cultural heritage is now seen as fetish instead of developing and promoting it. In other to save this great heritage of our nation, Ayanjo has created a platform to diversify, develop and promote this cultural heritage through dance, folk music, chants, proverbs, drums, craft, food, costumes and all via our dexterous artistic prowess. We edutain our audience and clients.

    Ayanjo offers performances in both conventional and non- conventional spaces accommodating a deeply varied audience. The troupe is deeply committed to creating work that generates conversation and interaction between our professional dancers and the audience, bringing classes in dance appreciation and history to all Nigerians, offering classes that engage the novice dancer and challenge the professional. All of our work includes discussion of the artist’s inspiration and process, and provides the audience with the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the artists after the performance. Ayanjo helps her audience and students re-establish a deep connection with their own body, forge awareness of the incredible nuance and expression available through movement, and revitalize their experience with the art of dance.
