They worked dedicatedly for a week with an average of 52 children every day between 3 to 18 years of age, and every part of the centre vibrated with drumming and dancing. The Rebecca and Ofelia taught kids from the slums Modern dance, learnt our local songs and found unique ways of teaching Life Skills through their dances.
On final day we had the dance taken to Kibera where the Children demonstrated their dances and took opportunity to teach others in the slums the same. We all clearly enjoyed having them around..."Our steps were all turned to their dancing mood, I tried hard not to forget the every step I learnt!" Elizabeth Atieno exclaimed eagerly.
Leaving was the hardest thing imaginable, many of the kids cried, and only let the ladies go when they were told that they would come back agin soon..we hope they will.
