My name is Godwin and I hail from a small village in the Afadjato South District in the Volta region of Ghana.
I am a dance teacher,trainer and performer at national and international platforms.
In 2019 I set up a small dancing and drumming cultural institute to train young people in the movement.
The Institute is recognised by the Centre For National Culture as a dance training school.
I trained lot of international students,music students,dance teachers and lot of professional in the field.
In my dance institute you will find young children from my locality who are learning new skills,movements,dance and culture.
I engaged these children because I want them to use their free time for a particular skills they can use in the creative arts industry for the future.
In addition,we perform drama,local movies, poetry and many arts and drawing.
My vision is to see these children rising in the creative art industry in the future.
My next step is to continue building confidence in these children,training them and blending local and international dance movements.
For this reason,I need helpers from allover the world to participate in my project by learning,helping in training in foreign dance,teaching flutes and trumpets and other musical instruments and general work at the institute.
