The Afro Dance Xplosion is a festival celebrating dance and music from Africa and the Diaspora. The festival includes a Showcase and workshops taught by teachers, specialising in styles within the African Diaspora. Normally the festival takes place during the month or October, which is Black History Month in the UK.
Artists, which include Choreographers, Dancer, Musicians, and creatives are invited to be apart of ADX. ADX especially loves to work with young people as we realise that they are the future of music and dance in the African Diaspora.
