Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village Traditional Dance Troupe: Isheja
On Sunday, October 5th, ASYV’s traditional dance team, Isheja Dance Troupe, competed at the national level. Isheja has received notable acclaim over the past few years and has long been considered a fierce competitor throughout Rwanda. This year, Isheja won first place at the regional level and at their performance on Sunday placed them 4th in the country - an amazing accomplishment! Leading up to the national competition, the Isheja Troupe practiced three times per week at two-hour intervals. The drums that make up the beat seemed to be playing non-stop as supporters cheered on the dancers throughout every rehearsal. There are 50 dancers within Isheja, while only 20 perform at competitions. Among them are Senior 6 (12th grade) student Claudine Ingabire of the Julius Nyerere Family and Senior 5 (11th grade) student Peter Mugengana of the John Locke Family.
