LSDC weaves storytelling, music and dance rooted in West African culture.


We are overjoyed to be in residency at the Meridian Arts Centre thanks to Fall for Dance North’s support. At the end of residency, LSDC  will present an excerpt of the work we’re developing – WAVES | VAGUES  – at the 33rd Annual International Association of Blacks in Dance (IABD) Conference & Festival in partnership with Dance Immersion on January 26, in Toronto.

This month of January we will share parts of our creative process with you. Follow us on IG and FB for weekly updates.

“The show’s energy is infectious. As for that choreography, it’s riveting to watch. Complex rhythms are attacked with nimble feet and swinging arms.”
Martha Schabas, Globe & Mail
“In the neo-traditional elements, the four dancers are in constant motion, negotiating through hard-driving solos, duets, trios and quartets with fierce energy….. Never losing the rhythm, their bodies tell a story.”
Paula Citron, Critic
“Lua Shayenne DANCE COMPANY is a small group of gifted, fearlessly energetic young dancers.”
David MacFarlane, The Toronto Star
