Krump Studios headed by my girl, Jemimah Angulu is doing a Nigerian version of some of our most favourite moments from the Grease Movie. Grease: The Naija Mix is the first full length dance theatre production in Abuja. Based on the 1970’s classic Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, the production aims to recreate fond memories re-telling the story but set in Nigeria in the 70’s. With a blend of original scores, grease favourites and fresh choreography, Grease: The Naija Mix promises to be a must watch for the month of August.

The event is the Maiden production of The Speaking Feet Project, a dance theatre project aimed at providing jobs for young talented dance /theatre performers by providing avenues for show casing their talent.
The production aims to entertain and expose the Nigerian audience to various forms of performing arts outside mainstream entertainment. It also intends to create a platform for dancers pursuing a professional career in the competitive yet limited entertainment market. Most importantly though, it aims to produce exportable art and create an international brand made up young Nigerian talent.
This project is an initiative of The Krump Dance Studios Abuja, a recognized and registered dance studio which specializes in dance fitness, dance training and dance theatre and entertainment

I spent Saturday evening supporting Krump studios at their promotional, Grease- themed costume party, where I MCed. Jemima taught us a few steps and the cast treated us to great performances. I encourage you to come for the main event because it will be worth every naira spent. See you there!
