About Us

The award winning ADANTA is a cultural organisation dedicated to the preservation, education, and appreciation of traditional African music, dance, theatre, and culture, pursuing its mission through ongoing workshops, performances, youth programs, touring engagements, lecture demonstrations, community outreach, and creative partnership programs with renowned artists and performing companies.

ADANTA (African Dance and Theatre Training Ltd) was founded in 1997. ADANTA tours with a company of six dancers, five drummers and one acrobat/body contortionist. This combination of people offers a variety of workshops, residencies, theatre productions and public performances.

ADANTA creates work aimed specifically at enabling the audience to experience the beauty and energy that African dance can generate. Our programs have extensive workshop elements culminating into site specific events; these can be performed in unusual spaces, environments and high theatres. The size of the troupe can also be altered to suit the specific requirements of event organizers.

ADANTA exists to explore and express an idea through dance, which reflects its African roots, society and way of life. Its philosophy is to create innovative work by using sources rooted in traditional African culture and to communicate the diversity of dance vocabulary within the continent to its wide range of audiences.

“The work that Adanta have done with the school has always been of such high quality and has benefited many children.” Theresa Landreth, Headteacher, Mitchell Brook Primary School “Adanta have a professional approach to their works and their tutors are of a very high standard. They have great rapport with young people and work very hard to engage them, in order to get the most out of their course. We continue to be impressed with how much the young people learn in such a short space of time.” Dee Albert, Hounslow Integrated Youth Support Service.
