M’Bemba Bangoura has traveled all over the world as both a teacher and performer of West African drum and dance.  He toured for years with Ballet Djoliba, one of Guinea’s national ballets, before moving to the United States 20 years ago.
M’Bemba continues to tour the world and is sought after as a teacher from Mexico to Belgium and many places in between.  We look forward to welcoming him back to the Seacoast!
Liz Fowler-Camara has been dancing most of her life. With a BA in Dance Studies from Connecticut College, she was first introduced to West African Dance as a student in 1991 and was immediately hooked. Since then, she has studied with teacher
s from Guinea, Mali and Senegal and has traveled to Guinea to study dance intensively four times.  She teaches a weekly dance class at the Dance Hall in Kittery.
