JNIIFA gives you an insight into Afrobeats. The dance style is a generic term for the modern dance styles from Ghana and Nigeria. This includes styles such as Azonto, Shaku, Zanku and many more. Afrobeats takes its name from the music genre Afrobeat. The cultural, social and free-spirited side of Afrobeats creates an environment in which you can have fun while learning and express yourself freely.
