Who are we?
Professional dancer with heaps of teaching experience
Silyvesta was a professional dancer with heaps of experience as a dance teacher in primary and secondary schools across a vast area of Western Tanzania. He was also Secretary for Arts & Culture in a grassroots organisation supporting local youth and often called upon by local authorities to lead cultural projects.
Passionate teacher bringing out the best in everyone
Lizzie has a background in teaching and social work and a passion for performing arts. She has taught languages and more from nursery right through to university - in the UK, Germany, Namibia and Tanzania. Across all these groups, she recognised self-confidence as a major obstacle to progress for many students. Incorporating drama and music into lessons had an amazing impact!
What is Kiduku?
Kiduku is an East African dance style requiring coordination, strength and positive energy. It represents our commitment to developing our unity, health and wellbeing as a community - as well as enjoying music and culture together!
We'll have a stall on the stage at Plumstead Community Market this Saturday 21st September, 11am-3pm. See you there!

At Kiduku Rhythms Community Interest Company, we take child safety very seriously. All our Kiduku Kidz staff have enhanced DBS checks, undergo appropriate safeguarding training, and follow strict policies and procedures designed to protect the children in our care. We are fully insured for all the activities we offer and compliant with relevant government regulators.
Our commitment to safety and wellbeing guided our decision to register Kiduku Kidz Performing Arts Club on Ofsted's voluntary register (as a performing arts provision, registration is not compulsory). Our application has been accepted (no. 996738) and is currently being processed in a long queue, but all the required safeguarding measures are already in place at our club and we are inspection-ready.
Part of our plan to support community integration is welcoming local collaborations.
Whether you have a community group you think might benefit from a performing arts session with us, or you are involved in teaching any kind of music, dance, drama or performance and would like to share your magic with us - or both! - please contact us :)
If you have a dance idea that doesn't fit into any of our project programmes, you're welcome to get in touch about private hire for dance coaching. Here are some examples of services we can offer:
fun kids parties
wedding dance choreography and lessons
promotional events for businesses
corporate team-building activities
any group performance preparation
