As Ghanaians, dance has always been a significant aspect of our culture, and in the current era, it has emerged as a major force in contemporary music. When talking about dance, it is impossible to ignore Endurance Grand, a member of the esteemed DWP Academy. She will thus undoubtedly represent the nation in Berlin, Germany in 2024 at the esteemed Culture Dance Clash Festival, which is organised by the German organisation.

Europe’s biggest dance festival dedicated to Black dance cultures is called Culture Dance Festival. The festival, which was started with the theme “Rooted Fruits,” is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary this year. Prince Ofori, the current Director and Head of Curation, and Margarita Bönning-Ofori, the current Head of Production, founded the event. The Centre for Dance and Culture (CDC) was founded in 2014, and since then, it has fulfilled its mission to acknowledge dance culture as an essential component of society and to highlight the significance of understanding Black dance cultures’ historical roots. The festival is slated for May 15–20 this year, and it will include workshops, classes, and—most importantly—the Culture Dance Clash battles!.

This year’s festival will feature speakers and judges including Ghana’s Endurance. Alongside professional dancer and choreographer Craig Black Eagle, she is scheduled to host an Afropop workshop and participate in a hotly contested dance battle panel.
