DANCERS, PERFORMANCE ARTISTS & ENTERTAINERS
Welcome to the Virtual-Lancaster Performance Gallery - featuring local
performance artists and entertainers. As you can see, this part of the
site is still under construction but we hope you enjoy the links below

The Beat Artistes
West african drum, dance, song and story from Guinea Conakry - at its best from the best. Performing on traditional instruments, the Beat Artistes will thrill you at events (corporate and private), school and community workshops, projects and performances, with their exhilarating beats and sassy dance steps. Performing and teaching from Singapore to Senegal to Sussex, Maitre Samsou from Les ballets africains and Diane Camara, formerly Drumdance, also teach weekly classes at St Paul's social centre (opp. church), Scotforth Road, Lancaster on Tuesday evenings.
