Where are my mother f**king noisemakers at? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You know who you are!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The dreamer.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The doer... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The believer! ⠀⠀

The woman who is an innovator, creator, and visionary, believing that she can. She WILL make the dance community a better place using her unique gifts!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I see you... I am you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You are not meant to be a part of the machine. You are meant to change the f**king world! ⠀⠀

In episode #129 of the Dance Boss Podcast I sit down with a true noisemaker, Shaumba-Yandje Dibinga, founder and artistic director of OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center, a non-profit organization that offers quality dance, theater arts, and African history education, with a special emphasis on teaching young people self-respect, health, nutrition, education, self-esteem, and the extent of African influences on various contemporary art forms.

We dive into the importance and circular energy of giving back and the idea of building a strong community within your organization. And, I got soo much from this interview, I know you will too!

Are you a noisemaker? Or do you know any? Shout them out!
