On the 15th September, 2017, choreographer Mbulelo Nbabeni launched his company, N'Da Dance Company, with an enthralling evening of dance, entitled the 'Nay Triple Bill'. Held at Rich Mix, Mbulelo Ndabeni staged an evening of thought provoking works in collaboration with Yinka Esi Graves, Dr Omar Timberlake and Carolyn Bolton exploring the notion of masculine, feminine and conflict. We were fortunate to have performed his piece 'I Matter' as a curtain raiser. The event was sold out and showcased Mbulelo's fantastic work. It was a pleasure to have been involved in the wonderful event. https://www.richmix.org.uk/events/dance/nay-triple-bill

A fantastic audience for our end of year dance showcase
Thank you to everyone who attended our end of year dance showcase, 'Resilience'. We are grateful to those who were in the audience, and those who supported from afar. The dancers presented a range of pieces in Jazz, Contemporary and South African influenced dance styles, choreographed by Kamara Gray, Gerrard Martin, Amanda Lewis, and guest choreographer Mbulelo Ndabeni.
The evening was hosted by Simone Daley-Richards, and also featured performances by two special guest artists. Choreographer, Hannah Anderson-Ricketts, presented a beautiful duet, 'Remote', featuring dancers Valerie Ebuwa and Cherilyn Albert. Namron OBE, performed his emotional solo, 'Missing', which was a delight to watch. The audience included the Worshipful the Mayor of Islington, Councillor Kat Fletcher and the Islington Young Mayor, Darey Cletus who both gave positive feedback for the performance.
We'd like to thank the Islington Council Local Initiatives Fund for their support, as well as Paradise Patties and Miss Munchins Cupcakes, for providing the delicious food for the evening. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we look forward to presenting futures performances.
