Olga El An avid disciple of world dance Olga El is inspired by the cultural traditions to which she has been exposed and a love of storytelling. From a young age she was particularly enamored by dances from the Middle East and the northern hemisphere of Africa‐‐ better known as belly dance‐‐and chose these dance forms as the foundation of her personal fusion style which includes martial arts, circus arts, and dances from the West African Diaspora including Latin‐American styles and Hip Hop. From 2008‐2011 she directed the belly dance troupe Bastet and its charitable sub‐division Belly Dance for Change. She is the founder and artistic director of The Kandake‐‐a new dance‐theatre collective that combines social activism and philanthropy with folkloric, modern, theatrical and experimental movement. Olga has coordinated several charity events enlisting talent such as Akim Funk Buddha, Beatbox Guitar, and America's Best Dance Crew judge, Lil' Mama. TaneshaD has performed in such places as Atlanta's own Apache Café and the Madame CJ Walker Beauty Shoppe and Museum, the world renowned Nuyorican Café in New York, and she has featured at various colleges and universities nationally.
