Help us achieve this objective! Support the future of young senegalese dancers!
Ecole de Sables (EDS) under the new artistic direction of Wesley Ruzibiza and Alesandra Seutin, has the plan of putting in place Jant-Bi II; formed of young dancers based in Senegal.
This project will begin in March 2021 and will target a minimum of 30 Senegalese dancers.
