The foundation was brought into being in 2013 because of great love and passion for music and dance originated in Africa. Because of limited knowledge and lack of awareness about values of primary rhytmes in our country, it is engaged in spreading the comprehensive information and empirical sensation regarding experience with African music and dance.

Afro dance has many varieties and styles as well as rich, global history. Depending on geographic location and time, African dance took different forms. African dance has given rise to many varieties of dance. The Foundation organizes Afro Revolution Festival which took place for the third time in 2013. It aims to show the diversity of African rhythms and steps.

The festival is an international event which promotes the African culture in Europe and especially in Poland. Afro Revolution is an ambitious cultural project. Its aim is to spread the knowledge and passion for dance and the diversity of African cultures.

  • conducting educational and cultural activity in the field of African dances as well as other dance styles, especially in terms of initiating, supporting and assisting in educational and cultural projects relating to music and dance in general.
