Where in the whole of Africa, have you heard of a dance program rather project, with keen interest in out saucing women issues or challenges and probably coming up with solutions? Well, Women have had many challenges which in most cases are not paid any attention to and in case they are, solutions remain unclear.
Most of the people are familiar with such Dances or dance projects in Europe and probably in America, but if that has been regarded impossible,Uganda is one of the African Countries with ‘Women with brains,’ who always look for possibilities to get the under privileged voices, heard.
A group of concerned, creative and responsible ladies have fused themselves together, to come up with ways of creating awareness and highlighting women issues through a healthy way; Dance.
RozViccyCathy (RVC) production, with its partners, Sheraton Hotel, Next Media among others, have organized a women dance theatre project dubbed ‘I am Female Dance Production’ happening in March 5, 2019 at the National theatre auditorium.
While addressing Journalist this morning at Sheraton Kampala Hotel, Viccy Birungi a member of the RVC Production, said that the dance is practically about conveying different messages concerning what Females face in societies.

The beauty also revealed that the entire cast, together with other crew is very ready to showcase on that day, before proceeding to applaud their partners for the support.
“This Dance isn’t any different from the other commercial dances you’ve always seen us do, we are not going to deviate from our usual dance, but this one, this time round is full of messages that highlight Women issues. I must thank our partners; Sheraton Hotel, Next Media and all the Journalists for the support you are giving us.”
