Afia Weekend Special vol 1

Come experience the vibrant culture from South Africa. We dive into the world of isiPantsula and Amapiano together with our experienced dance teachers from Johannesburg, South Africa!


This Weekend special is hosted in MALMÖ, Sweden.
On the schedule we have dance workshops, panel talks, performance and a dance jam.


During our open jam we will have a battle preselection, and yes you are reading this right, NO battle but only the preselection. If you pass the preselection you will battle on the 15th of aug at Malmöfestivalens (SWE) dance stage “Fontänen”. There you will meet some of our invited battle guest in a fun conceptual battle starting the Quarterfinals with 1vs1 and ending with a 3vs3 battle in the final.
