"La oss danse" with Panta Rei!

MUDA is delighted to announce our 3-year partnership with Panta Rei Dance Theatre, supported by DTS and the Norwegian embassy. 

As well as helping to select MUDA’s very first students, Panta Rei will also be advising the Tanzanian dance centre on curriculum and artistic direction, rolling out teacher training programs and sharing their global network of teachers and dance practictionners. 

Established in 2000, the Oslo-based company is known for reaching out to groups not traditionally targeted by the dance world with fun, accessible and dynamic performances.

Introducing Nia Love

MUDA is excited to announce that Nia Love, in collaboration with New York Live Arts, will be hosting a workshop with our students to develop a piece for this year's the Time 2 Dance Festival. The choregraphy entitled Ram Flash evokes the importance of agriculture in the human story, or as she put it, "a kind of rescue mission for us all... a deliverance, disembarrassment, disentanglement, emancipation, extrication, feat, heroism, liberation, ransom, reclaiming, recovery, redemption, release, relief, salvation!"

Nia is a dancer, choreographer and self-professed "conceptual artsist/ anarchist" based in New York. Her teaching credits include Columbia university, Barnard College and assistant professor at Queens College and Hunter College,
