About your teacher:

Jokeh is a dance artist from Latri Kunda in the Gambia, specialising in West African ballet. 

Internationally recognised for her knowledge of traditional West African Manding dances and other cultural dance forms, including Djembe, Wolof, Sabar, Fula, Calabash and Jola. 

As a teenager toured the USA with the Gambian National Dance Troupe. She has been based in Manchester since 2003 and she earns her living performing, working in theatre, running educational programmes and workshops and providing private tuition. 

Back in the Gambia, Jokeh still manages African Dance – one of the leading drum and ballet dance troops in the country. Established in 1989 the collective includes artists from Guinea, The Gambia and Senegal who regularly perform at roots and culture festivals, major hotels and at traditional ceremonies.
