THE AFRICAN DANCER- MUHAMMAD ISMAT


This is the story of one Mohamed from the coast region of Kenya. A dedicated young Kenyan dancer, whose love for dance is exceedingly his definition of life. When we first talked, he shocked me with his humility and getting to know him I couldn't get myself to the level of skill this kid has.

OFFICIAL NAMES: Mohamed Ismat

MOHAMED ISMAT POISE


STAGE NAME: Bboy Moretrix/ more-Di stunt Master

DATING BACK


In 2010, around the same time I was in secondary school, I met with one Deny c. reloaded swagga king (Dennis Oketch) and fell in love with what I came to later learn as great movement. I wanted to move like him, make dance out of sound. Dance to me is air, something I can’t live without.

A STORY OF GREAT DANCE INSPIRATION:DENNIS OKETCH


You can call me a Kenyan youth because I Work, school(Mass Media) and volunteer as a community health worker to ensure the community get a better health and encourage them to seek medical attention. It’s my pride and joy and for what it’s worth it helps me sleep at night knowing that I make a difference in society.

ROLE MODELS


This is dance and as you know the list of role models is inevitably long because dance is an evolution of movement and in there difference many dance styles are incomparable. Stanley Obenjo (whose picture I might not be able to produce) is my all time favorite mainly because of his story. He was part of G clef and when he moved to Nairobi and joined Sarakasi Dancers his light at the end of the tunnel grew brighter. Later he moved to Sweden to a crew called *Out of Africa*.

POSE FOR PEACE FROM A KENYAN DANCER
Mark Jordan (founder of G-Clef Dancers), Billy Sadia (Former Sarakasi Chorographer) have influenced my dance journey in a major way and will always remain humble and respectable to them.

THE BALANCE


Prior planning is of grave importance because with my type of schedule and the importance of my activities to my life I can’t afford to slack so in plain words its school in the morning hours and evenings reserved for dance. Period!
As I plan to exit this story of a young Kenyan I can’t help pray that dance through our various efforts gets the recognition it deserves. This is the story of an African Dancer.
