Hodi Maputo Afro Swing is hosting an international dance exchange March 12-18 2018, just before Mother City Hop in Cape Town! After the second edition in 2017 we are again excited about inviting international dancers to Mozambique to experience our culture, take drum and dance classes with our local teachers and feel the energy of the swing kids. This is a dance exchange for advanced dancers; an opportunity to learn from some of the best dancers in Mozambique! Together we will spend a week dancing, enjoying live music and spending some days at the beautiful beach by the Indian Ocean.
MASX is different from other exchanges, it is an invitation to an experience rather than to an event. It is an opportunity toget back to the roots of extraordinary dancing and at the same time leave a stressful daily life and learn the “Mozambican way”; people smiling from their hearts, enjoying the small things around them and feeling that rhythm!
Does it sound like a crazy adventure to go to Mozambique? Don’t worry, you are in safe hands, we will help you with visa and travels and the group will stay together during the whole stay.
Registration will open later this year, we will keep you posted!
Watch this video to get an idea of who we are.
Hodi Maputo Afro Swing are going to perform for you at the event!.
We are exited to have our "God mother" Angela Andrew for the first time in Mozambique sharing her experience and knowledge while supporting the connection "Afro Swing".
You will get the chance to see Hodi Swing Kids perform and maybe even have a social dance with them during the exchange!
