Toronto Dance Community Love-In is excited to share our season opening partnership with dance Immersion. dance Immersion is a leader in Producing, Promoting and Supporting dancers and dances of the African Diaspora since 1994. Together we are hosting Faizal Mostrixx from Uganda with a TO Love-In workshop and dance Immersion dance Immersion’s Presentation.
When vocals or instrumental sounds are combined in a way to produce a beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion (Music). When we allow our bodies to go inside the music we can access our consciousness that will shape further decisions for our presence in posture.
This class will involve exploring technical, complex, improvisational and physical movement vocabularies from African drum music to digital /experimental music and rhythms.
This workshop aims to develop the dancers’ musicality, creative mind, speed, control (determination) and decisions they make as their bodies become instruments during and after the workshop. The music in this session is very important. It will challenge, inspire, motivate you and surprise your body strength.
My style as a mover and a music manipulator has been inspired by mixing both my desire of making music and dance, through working on different levels of dance forms like contemporary, traditional African, Hip Hop, Breaking (b-boying), Afro fusion, popping and working with music and voice teacher’s likes of Charmaine Leblanc & Angelique Willkie.
Faizal Ddamba aka Mostrixx is a freelance professional dance performing artist and music producer. His expertise includes breaking,contemporary, popping, hip hop, house dance, fusing it all with African Ugandan traditional dance forms, giving it a unique rhythmic and groovy abstract afro texture.

Joined Break Dance Project Uganda, a youth founded project that uses break dance and other elements of hip hop bridging young people together for a positive social change in societies.
