West Africa – Merhbe! Bienvenue!
WOS established (in 2017) a partnership with Step Lorde, a Senegal, West Africa based step team. The team has been working diligently to help promote, educate and enhance the dance genre of step in their region of West Africa and within their local communities.
About West Africa
Senegal is bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest. Senegal also surrounds The Gambia, a country occupying a narrow sliver of land along the banks of the Gambia River, which separates Senegal’s southern region of Casamance from the rest of the country. Senegal also shares a maritime border with Cape Verde. Senegal’s economic and political capital is Dakar.
