Afrotonic Performances & Corporate Workshops

Afrotonic can bring to you spectacular, high energy African dancing for various occasions:

  • Corporate Functions
  • Team-building events
  • Community and Cultural Festivals
  • School/ early learning workshops
  • Birthday parties or special celebrations (hen's nights etc)
  • And any other ideas you might think off!

From 2 dancers with CD music to a full 10-piece live African Drum and Dance Group, we can create for you a tailor fit program that meets your particular needs. Afrotonic Performance Troupe regularly performs with their own trio of drummers (Warren Harvey, Paul Grocott and Phil Korn), but also with other professional African Percussion groups like AWKAABA, Djaa boyz, African drumming circles, and Village Vibes Marimba band. Together they can create for you an unforgettable, rhythm-charged event or workshop. For bookings and quotes, please contact us.

African music and dance is a very powerful tool for social cohesion and Afrotonic offers interactive team-building and school workshops that inspire community personal growth and cultural exchange.

Corporate drum and dance workshops as a team-building exercise are a very effective way of developing a culture of cooperation in our contemporary work environment by clearly demonstrating the importance of everyone’s contribution to create something powerful and harmonious.

In schools, Afrotonic creates a fun and supportive environment where all participants feel equally welcome and successful, using drum and dance workshops to help eliminate social barriers and to celebrate each one’s culture and traditions whilst stimulating children’s creativity.
