ABOUT

Afro Urban Society is an exuberant network of brilliant artists and culture workers dedicated to celebrating the unique expressions of Urban Africans through programs, performances and productions.

Dance Mission Theater is a nonprofit performance venue and dance school located in the Mission District of San Francisco, California. The theater is operated by Dance Brigade, a female dance troupe with a focus on social change.

Gbedu Town Radio Over-articulated and barely  translated, Gbedu Town Radio tells dynamic stories for the culture. Led  by Artistic Director, Nkeiruka Oruche, and featuring a dynamic group of  performers, GTR explores social and political themes through Pan  Afro-Urban music and dance including Afrobeats, Dancehall, Coupé-Décalé  & varieties of Hip hop.

Feline Finesse Dance Company, est 2014, is a youth sisterhood stemming from the origins of the Bayview-Hunters Point community, San Francisco. Our mission is to create a safe haven for all young ladies to freely, creatively, and artistically express themselves through dance while empowering them to reach their full potential, goals and dreams. We self-identify thru genres of Hip-hop and West African; but most importantly, we philosophize a sisterhood of love and self-respect. We not only teach choreography, but we educate our young ladies in dance fundamentals, technique and overall etiquette.
