MuDa Africa is a non-profit organization, which gives professional training in the fields of music and dance to Tanzanian youth. MuDa, short for Music and Dance, means “time” in Swahili. Time alludes to movement, rhythm and space but also to a modern urban Africa that is integrated with traditional knowledge and wisdom. To MuDa Africa, Time (Muda) represents the present, with firm roots in the past, while defining the vision of the future.
MuDa Africa Dance, believes that contemporary dance cultivates the individual and collective spirit of creativity, trust, cooperation, discipline and openness to change. These are fundamental values and skills that will help the youth of Tanzania become agents of positive change in the society.
MuDa works alongside Panta Rei Danseteater from Norway and DTS.
