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


Come catch us at Common Ground Festival  September 21 to 23 at Lee Lifeson Art Park in North York.  On September 23, Artistic Director, Lua Shayenne will be teaching a free beginner African Dance workshop.

LSDC was thrilled to perform this August at Sharing the Stage presented by the National Ballet of Canada at Harbourfront Centre alongside other guest artists.

“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
