“What an incredible experience we had on Friday!!! I would highly recommend Africa Experience!! You guys are inspiring, knowledgeable and fun and made African Culture come alive.

  1. We have booked this workshop many times and have never been disappointed. The girls really enjoyed learning the rhythmic beats of the djembe drums and exploring a typical farming day through traditional African dance. Anna and Oury were full of knowledge and enthusiasm and it was a perfect start to our African Adventure!

  2. All the children had an amazing day after your return visit to our school. Both the drumming and dance workshop had the children, and adults, actively participating and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Anna and Wourri have such a lovely way with the children.
    Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

  3. Thank you so much Anna for making the day so special. Each class said they learned something different from the stories. Thank you for taking the time to differentiate the activities for the different groups, from PMLD to Autistic SLD to deaf/blind, all the groups were interacting and gaining greater understanding of the culture through storytelling. Thank you so much!

  4. Year 6 had an absolutely fantastic time on Tuesday! Capoeira in the morning and dumming in the afternoon worked extremely well. As usual Anna, Manjerico and Oury were brilliant with the children and enabled them all to reach their full potential. A great self-esteem boost for all. Thank you!
