NCC LAUNCHES ‘DANCE AFRICA DANCE DIASPORA’
The National Commission on Culture (NCC) in collaboration with African Diaspora Association of Canada and Majestic Entertainment Group of America Foundation has officially launched its dance competition dubbed, “Dance Africa Dance Diaspora” on February 17, 2021 at the Accra Tourism Information Center.
The initiative which is geared towards empowering children, the youth and young adults as well as selling Africa to the world was birthed last year but in the advent of the novel virus, COVID-19, the initiative was halted.
The Executive Director for the NCC, Madam Janet Edna Nyame as she launched the initiative said, the NCC are on board with this project because as part of the institution’s mandate is to promote Ghanaian culture internationally, and also identify and give exposure to and support creative individuals and their activities for the benefit of society.
She went on to say that, another aim of this project is to help unearth and develop the talents of our youth who love to play and dance as amateurs or professionals. The contestants will do an online registration and pay an amount of money based on their numbers because the competition has been designed to host solo dancers, duet/trio dancers, smaller groups of four to eleven (4-11) and larger groups of 11 and above.
She further expressed her excitement towards the program as she also announced that the competition will see the exhibition of national folklore dance, dance afro beat, song and dance, classical ballet, street dance, modern, hip hop and tap dances. She finally urged everybody especially the youth to partake in the competition to hone their dancing skills in any of the disciplines.
