African dancing is not a new genre, but there is so little media coverage given to the dancers. While most dancers will never become famous, a few have made their way to the top of the performance and choreography circuit.
Meet Ms. Fay Nelson, the lady who is trying to give credit to the dancers.
Fay has the rhythm, the charisma and more importantly, the passion. She is known for her dancing clips of video posted on face book. She decided to take this passion one step further, off the World Wide Web and on the stage.
In March 2013, Fay Nelson established All Star African Dance Competition, the first U.S.A based show business intended to showcase and bring to the spotlight what African music and dance is all about. The organization’s plan of action is to conduct a dance competition from state to state every July. Once the five cycles are completed and they have five winners, there will be a grand finale, where the top two winners from all five cycles will compete for a grand prize. All of the grand finales will be in the month of March after a completion of five consecutive cycles.
In July 2013, the company held their first successful event in Des Monies, Iowa. We are looking forward to details of the next competition. We will keep you posted as things unfold.
