Steven is the founder, choreographer and artistic director of @motemafrobeat. Originally from the Republique of Congo. His love for the choreographic arts officially began over a decade ago, when he decided to create classes aimed at moving the body to the frequency of different African rhythms.

Bringing together a mix of traditional and modern Bantu-inspired dances, and bringing forward self-expression in these classes. In 2018, He got accepted, and graduated 3 years later, amongst 23 other students from different parts of Africa for an intensive study in African Contemporary and Traditional Dance at the renowned Ecole des Sables in Senegal. 

Steven has traveled, taught and performed a variety of African dance styles in countries like: Mozambique, Senegal, Brazil, Belgium, France, USA and UK. 

His energy is electric and his class is very welcoming to beginners!

She has worked with various renowned artists and singers, such as Innoss'B, Diamond Platnumz, Fally Ipupa, Tidiane Mario, and many more...

The workshop will be touching on Afro dance trending moves, fundamentals of some African Urban and Traditional Dances and of course Motema's Ndombolo style.
