Uchenna Dance is a touring dance theatre company that since its inception in 2009 has grown from an informal explorative company into a tour de force within the dance sector. The company was formed 10 years ago under the vision and leadership of choreographer Vicki Igbokwe shortly after she experienced a life-changing trip to New York.
Feeling like a fish out of water throughout her stay, whilst falling in love with the underground dance scene, Vicki was introduced to club styles House, Waacking and Vogue.
Emerging from that experience with a new-found confidence, Vicki returned to London inspired and encouraged to support others with their journeys enabling them to be the best version of themselves.
Today, the company’s overarching aim is to empower, entertain and educate through dance in a diverse programme that includes the creation of dance theatre production experiences, coaching, dance-based empowerment workshops and teaching in schools and institutions.
The Uchenna dance style uses founder Igbokwe’s signatory blend of club styles House, Waacking and Vogue fused with African and Contemporary dance, creating a signatory aesthetic that simply is, Uchenna.
To create and tour dance shows, for people from all walks of life, that empower, entertain and educate.
To be the ‘go to’ company for all things dance and leadership on a global scale!
