Wedding reception African Dance Entertainment

Adanta was a major hit with all of our wedding guests. From the grand dance entry to the amazing performance they put on on stage, Adanta was in their element. No pair of eyes was torn away but remained riveted on them throughout for every second they were there. The children who attended loved them so much.
Their performances were excellent, genuinely amazing team, our guests are still messaging us about how much they loved Adanta.
And yes there was audience participation…wink wink..

Garden Entertainment

Rose organised an excellent homecoming celebration for a small group of friends in my garden. It was joyous and uplifting at a time when we all needed a boost after being locked down. The event was arranged at short notice and gave us special memories of our reunion with good friends. Thank you to all the performers who were friendly and very talented. The level of audience participation was perfect for our little gathering.
