Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

This year’s Trailblazers Showcase features the choreography of Adesola Akinleye, Ithalia Forel, and Sara Dos Santos* in a triple bill of their latest work.

Drawing on their distinct, individual contemporary African styles they have created an evening of personal, physically-charged dance.

The Trailblazers Fellowship is an annual One Dance UK programme, designed to support the professional development of artists dedicated to DAD (dance of the African diaspora), and artists of the African diaspora. The aim is to cultivate excellence in African people’s dance, by providing training and mentoring, to ensure the sustained investment in these talented individuals. Trailblazers features two strands of development, which alternate annually: Starters for first time applicants in the early stages of their careers, and Champions for past recipients of the fellowship who have demonstrated strong leadership and entrepreneurial spirit.

Trailblazer Starters 17/18 will be announced at this year’s showcase.       

Age recommendation 13+ 


There will be a post-show Q&A with the Trailblazer artists offering insight on their inspirations and the opportunity to join in the discussion.

Trailblazers Fellowship is one of One Dance UK’s professional development programmes. *Neriah Kumah Legacy Gift recipient. One Dance UK, would like to take this opportunity to thank Neriah Ama Kumah, who has pledged £5000, in support of the professional development of artist working within dance of the African diaspora.
