Ghana Dance Ensemble is a group created with the goal to preserve rich heritage of the Ghana dance culture and support the creative work and creativity using Ghana dances as a basis. Since the beginning the group was supposed to be flag ship of professional global representation of Ghana and its musical and dance heritage and thus based on top-quality professional work and experimental research. In 1960‘s and 1970‘s the group together with Ballet African of Guinea Conakry presented the breathtaking insight into African aesthetics and culture from the African point of view to the world. The current form of the Ghana Dance Ensemble under the leadership of Ben ObidoAyetteymaintains the authenticity of traditions but at the same time widens the repertoire and examines dance as a tool of expressing contemporary questions. Ghana Dance Ensemble represents Ghana regularlyatinternational level.
