Artistic Director and Founder
Fatawu Sayibu is from the Northern Region of Ghana and comes from a drumming family; his traditional dances and use of the talking drum tell the stories of his culture, country, and people. Fatawu is a performer, a teacher, a choreographer and a mentor to the children in his community, as well as his students here in the U.S.
Every month Fatawu sends a large majority of his earnings back to his dance school in Ghana; providing costumes and instruments, while keeping the children that dance off the streets and connected to their traditional culture and heritage.
Fatawu performs at various cultural and community events, teaches individuals or groups of any skill level in both studios and schools in the metropolitan area; his students will learn that West African music and dance brings joy, creates peace, love and unity!
