Ballet Nimba invite you to join them for this exciting weekend of dance workshops in Bristol!
Students will get the chance to study with various members of the Ballet Nimba collective in a series of classes, including Djembe dance, Sabar dance and traditional singing!
Not only will students have the opportunity to learn with these highly sought after artists from across the UK, but they will be treated to a short performance at the end of the workshop as well as having the oppotunity to view a private screening of Idrissa Camara's award winning film 'Fare Ta' Land of Dance!

Ballet Nimba is an award winning performing arts company specialising in traditional West African Dance and Music. We provide performances which are renowned for their striking individuality, resonant memorability and cultural significance.
“"This is an energetic, at times highly acrobatic display of West African dance, The calibre of its accompanying musicians equals that of its dancers, whether delivering furious percussive work-outs or embroidering their compositions with the undulating melodies of the balafon and Fulani flute.” WOMAD Festival
