Trailblazer Champion

Ithalia has been named one of the 2016-17 One Dance Uk Trailblazer Champions, cultivating excellence in African people’s dance.

Since becoming a Trailblazer, Ithalia says she recognised her role within the sector, which she believes is to enable others to experience, learn and to understand and value Dance of the African Diaspora.   Ithalia sees her role as a Trailblazer Champion primarily as an enabler of young artists to achieve their goals and she is proud of her track record for developing and discovering new dance talent and ways of improving access to world dance. The Movema director is hoping her Trailblazer champion position will allow more opportunities to explore her passion for culture, dance and education.
