World Dance Day!

IMG-20200130-WA0006“We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams”–Albert Einstein

That quote says it all. Even in the covid 19 terror that we are all facing collectively as citizens of the world, as dancers, we live through our dance in hope, in love and in victory that yes, everything will be alright in the end.

As we celebrate the international world dance day today, we have made this video in the hope that you find comfort in it and that it tells you,that  no matter what, the show must go on. Never give up!

Happy World Dance Day to everyone out there from us at SPAN! And don’t forget to dance at least a little today! It is worth it ! ❤

SPAN & SCOA Nigeria PLC Rewards Volunteer Trainee Instructor at SPAN with Full Scholarship

wisdom

“Hard work does not go unnoticed, and someday the rewards will surely follow”…And so that day has come For Wisdom Ukpe Udeoka Justin who began his journey with us At SPAN as one of the pioneer students of the SPAN Academy of Jazz and Contemporary Music. After his training, Wisdom served with the foundation for 2 years without pay and even volunteered at SPAN events with the kind of dedication and commitment we can only marvel at. He later became a trainee instructor at the academy.
In 2015, as a reward for his dedication towards the preparation of the prestigious SPAN@10 celebrations, Wisdom was given full scholarship to study and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts at the renowned Lebanese American University in Lebanon.
As he leaves us today to begin his scholarship studies at LAU, we at SPAN will miss him greatly. We appreciate him deeply for his tireless devotion towards our pursuits and we thank him for honoring us with his contributions towards the music academy. We look forward to his future accomplishments in the performing arts.
We would like to specially thank SCOA Nigeria PLC for sponsoring this project. Also Dr Nashat Mansour and Dr. Nadra Assaf of LAU for partnering with us to make it happen.
