My name is Lydia Onagoruwa and I am first generation Canadian Nigerian. Dance has always been a huge part of my life however I always shyed away from my cultural dances due to the fact that it was never cool/accepted to be African while I was growing up. Now that the world is more accepting of Africans, people are interested and want to learn the culture especially through dance. As a result I applied myself in many west African master dance classes and learned how to play the Jembe/dun drums. This allowed me in turn to work alongside side many of my dance teachers and I graduated to teach in 2017.
Now I have the liberty of teaching health and wellness through my dance and culture in various schools within the TDSB and community platforms such as Tiabu community health. Dance is an expression of feeling through the rhythm of music. I would love for everyone to feel the same joy and Freedom I have attained through dance. Come dance with me and let your feelings be free!
