Festival Accès Danse
Spokesperson for the 13th edition of the Festival Accès Danse
Axelle « Ebony » Munezero
For me, dance has always been a way of expressing things that can’t be said with words. It’s a language that speaks to the body, feelings and emotions. Dance helps us grow, dance lets us dream, but above all, dance creates bonds between people.
I’ve been lucky to experience unforgettable moments throughout my career and these experiences have shaped my way of living, thinking and seeing the world. I am touched every time I see young passionate dancers take over this art and this is why it is a great pleasure for me to be the spokesperson for this amazing festival.
