NIO FAR: WE ARE TOGETHER

AFRICA UNITE

For the past three years the Sabar Challenge has been a friendly competition for dance groups coming from different corners of the world. We saw amazing group performances of people who gave a personal touch to Sabar. This year, we aim to do it a bit different. We invite everybody to the stage, to share and learn. We welcome you to give a short dance demonstration during the show on Saturday night.

IT'S GONNA BE AMAZING. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
