Dance Afrique Experimental Flow (DAEF) is a two-week International Intensive Workshop visioned and developed by Alesandra Seutin | Vocab Dance. Today, Alesandra Seutin and Wesley Ruzibiza being Artistic Directors, they have decided to add this workshop to the annual programme of the Ecole des Sables.

Where: Ecole des Sables, Toubab Dialaw, Senegal

When: 3 to 15 April 2023

Deadline for applications: Friday, 17 February 2023

Ecole des Sables brings to you two-weeks of intensive dance, encounter, exchange and conversations around social and contemporary dance cultures across Africa, its Diaspora and the world.
This international workshop invites dancers, makers and teachers, who work in social/club, traditional, contemporary and hybrid forms, to come together and experiment with the known/unknown transmission and creative approaches.
Participants of all the five continents are welcome to apply.
You will have the chance to exchange practice with other professional African dancers practicing in Urban/ Club dance forms and their respective traditional dances. The workshop will be a direct link to both the world these dancers live in and how closely their styles relate to each other and develop from each other. This will give you a platform for cultural exchange, self-reflection, professional development and discussions. This will also create opportunities for future collaborations amongst artists, choreographers and organisations.
You will live together, train daily in amazing open studios with inspiring and excellent teachers; exchange, discover dances, practices and cultures from one another within Ecole des Sables, a beautiful and secured dance centre.
Join us in this incredible experience!
