Dancehall Through The Ages Workshop by Dancehall Origins


My Project

Recommended For
Smithfield Festival Site

A high-octane journey of Dancehall through the ages – from dinki mini to ska, rocksteady to mid-school, right through to the present day. Bring your dancing shoes and feel the vibe with some of the top Jamaican Dancehall artists based here in the UK.

Get ready to move your waistline and learn your willie bounce from your log-on, your pon di river from your out and bad! Absolutely no experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to join in this key part of Jamaican culture.

About Dancehall Origins

Dancehall Origins (DHO) promotes and supports dancers, teachers and performers from Jamaica to share their practice in the UK. As an advocate for Dancehall history and culture, we aim to increase cultural awareness of the form by providing opportunities for UK dancers to connect with Dancehall Originators through events, workshops, film-screenings, lectures and more.
