The Embaga Dance of Buganda
Embaga was created during the reign of Kabaka Mwanga II (circa 1887). He used to enjoy music and dance from Busoga, and so invited artists from there to his palace. This inspired palace artists from Buganda to create a new dance called embaga.

Today embaga is performed for weddings, and through dance and song newly wedded couples are advised about marriage: about sex, raising children, cooking, house- keeping, etc. A typical performance will consist both of choreographed dances for eight or more dancers, and free-form sections. Underpinning all the dance styles is a fast-shaking hip movement, which is emphasised by a cleverly designed costume.

Albert Ssempeke told us that the dance used to be called ngoma by'ebisoko, which means "drum with many variations", and today the dance is constantly evolving. Each group will add newly created variations to their choreographies, often by first creating a drum variation, and then finding a new movement to go with it. Also, the dance allows individuals to express their own personality whilst maintaining the basic hip movement.

The Dances of Busoga

The oldest dance is thought to be irongo, a dance created to celebrate the birth of twins. Having twins is thought to be a blessing from God - a sign that "you have a good relationship with the spirits".

When you hear the irongo rhythm in a village, you'll know that twins have been born and a celebration is about to begin. Villagers will gather grass or dried banana leaves and tie these around their waists before joining the dance. This makeshift costume accentuates the movement of the waist, and makes the dance more beautiful.

The movements have sexual connotations. For example, when girls dance the okunyola variation, they move their waist in a circular motion, and place their hands on their breast to tease men. Or when the husband dances okunyola, he positions his hands as though he is holding a spear.

Tamenhaibuga has been danced since the eighteenth century. The name of the dance means "don't break the gourd" - a gourd is used as a cup in Busoga, and is a symbol of unity.

The dance is performed at the funerals of old people to celebrate their life. Funerals last several days and this dance is performed on the last day so that the family can release their sorrow. One of the songs says Amusika tiga isa, which means "tears don't bring back the dead". It is a happy dance, and i is danced in the different places where the dead person had been. 

Featured Ugandan Dance Company
believes that dance and the arts are critical components of poverty eradication, peace building, and educational efforts. Our goal is to increase international cooperation with Uganda in the arts to facilitate empowerment, growth, collaboration, and artistic training. Three goals guide our work:
Bring dance and the arts to a greater number of under-served Ugandans
Increase the impact of the arts in Uganda as tools to promote culture, well-being, and self-esteem
Strengthen the linkages between artistic communities in Uganda and the United States

Uganda Arts Outreach, Inc. grew out of a meeting between Uganda's Bugandan Queen and an American consultant on mission for the World Bank in Uganda. The Queen's experience laying the foundation for her country's first dance school paralleled similar experiences the consultant had led in Argentina and the United States. United in their love of Uganda and their commitment to the arts and poverty eradication, the two shared a vision to expand the scope of arts education in Africa. After a year volunteering as the International Development Director for the Queen's dance school, formerly the Kampala Ballet and Modern Dance School, an opportunity arose to forge more formal partnerships with international institutions seeking to assist the Ugandan effort.
