  • Afro-Caribbean Connections is such an important organization for the Kizomba scene in Chicago! I know through first hand experience that Shafeeha is passionate about the dance, music, and culture and has an amazing foundation herself to be able to draw from when she teaches weekly classes. Kimani and Shafeeha did an outstanding job with the Afro-Summer Weekender in 2016 and it showed! They care about spreading love for African influenced dance that brings people together regardless of where you are in the city, and they're are no doubt the real deal when it comes to dedication to their art! I love seeing them do their thing!
