Bec Combs

Bec started African dancing in Melbourne in 2003 learning Soukous with Suzi Mzuri. A dance originating from the Congo in Central Africa. In West Africa, Soukous is called the Congolese Rumba.

Bec learnt the style of Soukous in a warehouse in Melbourne and performed with other students at different events across Melbourne. Whilst enjoying the art of hip swinging with Suzi Mzuri, Bec discovered West African dance and began her journey with Senegalese and Guinean style dance. With teachers Lamine Sonko and Shonah Sonko African dance became an addiction.

 

It was here that Bec began West African drumming with Simon Lewis.  After many years of dancing and drumming in classes and being apart of a strong West African Drum & Dance community in Melbourne, Bec moved to the Sunshine Coast and established Rhythm Culture.

Bec traveled to California in 2017 and was taught by renowned teachers such as Youssouf Kombassa and Naby Bangoura. In 2018, Bec traveled to study dance in Guinea, West Africa where she was taught by members of the renowned Merveille Ballet. Bec now teaches West African dance at schools, kindergartens, workshops and regular classes on the Sunshine Coast and also performs and trains with Muso Foli Dance Troupe which was created by Bec in 2014. Bec continues to learn and study West African dance by hosting and attending camps and workshops offered by African artists and organisations around Australia and overseas.
