Intore Dance Troupe (Huye)
Music and dance play a central role in Rwandan life, be it ceremonies, festivals, social gatherings or storytelling. The most famous is the traditional Intore dance style which has men and women singing, dancing and drumming in a choreographed vibrant and lively combination. The style is one of the oldest kind of dance in Africa and has performance roots dating back to the courts of the Rwandan Mwami (kings).
