Centre Stage: October 2020 (3)

19 Oct 2020

This month for our Centre Stage feature, we are celebrating Black History Month! As part of our ‘I Move’ campaign this summer, we reached out to those working and practicing within the field of Dance of the African Diaspora and asked them to share with us why DAD is important to them, the challenges that they are facing at the moment and their hopes for the future.

In this next installment, we talk to Ella Mesma. Ella is a dance artist based in Leeds and Bristol. She is the founder of the Ella Mesma Company and works in a large variety of dance styles including Salsa, Afro Cuban, Samba, Afro Brazilian, Breaking, Contemporary, Aerial Silks, and Capoeira.
