MufukaWorks Dance Company was developed by Elsie Mufuka in 2010 with the inspiration of providing dance education and performances for the community. Since then, Mufuka has provided high art cultural dance experience through dance education and dance performance for the community. This inspiration grounded in Mufuka’s Zimbabwean lineage; professional experience; and, international travels has afforded her the opportunity to offer dance education programs and performances within a diverse community. Since the opening of the company, MufukaWorks has started dance education programs. Some of these programs include dance education at the Burton Wells Recreation Center in Beaufort, SC and, more recently, an education program at the Albemarle Road Recreation Center located in Charlotte, NC as well as Charlotte Ballet’s (formally North Carolina Dance Theater) teaching artist for REACH!, Dance Education Workshops at Whale Branch Elementary, Beaufort, SC, Bluffton School of Dance, Bluffton, SC, and Charlotte Dance Festival, Charlotte, NC. Additionally, Mufuka has brought dance performances to the International House in Charlotte, NC, Lexington International Festival in Lexington, NC, Gullah Festival, Piccolo Spoleto, Links Inc. Dance Performance School Series, Levine Children’s Hospital, Charlotte Emerging Young Artist Dance Festival just to mention a few.
