Gaspard Zamble is the founder and director of Zamble African Dance Company. Gaspard is a highly skilled dance practitioner with over 17 years’ professional experience teaching, choreographing and performing traditional African dance.
His arrival in London in 1992 ushered in a new and dynamic era for British African dance. Drawing on a tradition largely unknown in this country, Gaspard’s performances proved a revelation to audiences. The high-octane virtuosity of Ivoirian dance, especially that of the Gouro people from which Gaspard hails, was unlike anything seen in the UK before.
