MADI Youth Camp 2023

Updated: Feb 14

A special thanks to the City of Atlanta, the Mayor's office of Cultural Affaires and to the TRG for making this camp happened. The families and children from 3 to 12 years old were so appreciative of this opportunity.


Manga African Dance, Inc. (MADI) youth camp is designed with the intent to educate the youth in a fun way about the dances, percussion, visual arts, and story-telling of Africa. The concept is a package with dance (ballet 101, & intensive African Dance), percussion, storytelling and arts, during the one week of spring camp culminating with a display of all their art work, and performance of the music studied and dance. Three instructors rotate and work together to teach about their specialties. This project is intended to reach families who are trying to create a safe, fun, and cultural learning environment for their children during the Spring break happening in April, and to those who are financially in disadvantage.

This year, Manga was granted financial help from the City of Atlanta, Mayor's office of Cultural Affaires and the Training Resources Group, Inc. (TRG), We truly appreciate the continued support.


It is so rewarding to watch the campers making efforts and doing their best to follow directions, navigate through the structured camp, demonstrating curiosity, asking questions, cultivating interest, working well together or individually, and finally being proud of themselves about their own accomplishments at the end of the camp.
