African themed entertainment is a popular option for corporate events, bringing a lively atmosphere to dinners, award ceremonies, exhibitions and product launches. Whether it is African dancing, high impact drumming, mesmerising music or daring African circus shows, we have the best African entertainment ideas to suit your corporate event and create unforgettable memories for your guests.
African dancers are sure to WOW your corporate guests with their energetic, fully choreographed dance routines. Providing flashes of colour and fast paced dance moves, African dance shows are perfect for gala dinners and awards ceremonies. Also able to perform freestyle routines at corporate parties, African dancers encourage guests to engage in the party experience and celebrate the fantastic rhythms and traditional dance moves of Africa.
High-spirited African dance workshops are also a superb way to energise corporate guests at conferences. Professional African artists teach corporate guests authentic dance moves which can then be recorded as a group performance and shared on social media to promote employee engagement.
Perfect for networking events drink receptions or product launches, African performers make great walkabout entertainers. Mingling with attendees and posing for photos in their vibrant costumes, guests enjoy the opportunity to interact with African artists and learn about cultural traditions. A customisable entertainment option, African dance shows can be tailored to your requirements by varying the performance style line-up. Authentic African costumes can be specifically designed to coincide with your brand colours and additional African artists such as acrobats, musicians and percussionists added for extra effect.
African percussion is marvellous at corporate events because it combines dramatic rhythms with traditional African style. One way to incorporate percussion based African performers into your corporate event is to meet guests with a drumming parade upon arrival. This grabs an audience’s attention from the moment they enter the venue. Another suggestion is an after dinner African drumming show for award ceremonies or galas. The bespoke percussion performance can include your brand’s jingle to empower audiences and support your company’s promotional objectives.
African drumming workshops make an effective addition to team building days, conferences and incentive trips because delegates must collaborate to create their very own percussion shows. An inspiring interactive entertainment option, drumming workshops unify groups by creating shared goals for teams rather than encouraging competition.
If African drummers are not for you, why not consider other African musicians such as gospel singers, traditional kora players or hang musicians?
African gospel choirs never fail to create a feel-good atmosphere at corporate events. A welcoming and immersive type of African entertainment, gospel choirs work well at the entrance of drinks receptions and product launches. Due to their vibrancy, gospel choirs can also be a good way to energise and motivate corporate audiences after a day of conferences. For an extra WOW factor, the African musicians can perform in a flash mob style to surprise and delight your guests.
If you are looking for a unique vocal performance, consider hiring an empowering African a cappella show. Effortlessly combining a modern a cappella style with traditional African music, these talented acoustic vocalists are guaranteed to amaze corporate guests. Performing electrifying vocal harmonies, African a capella singers are perfect for energising guests as after dinner entertainment or to break up a day of meetings and conferences.
If you want to create an upbeat atmosphere at your African themed corporate event, we recommend you opt for an African party band. African musicians are the ultimate way to get the party started by playing energetic Afro Funk music that will draw guests onto the dance floor. African bands can also perform magnificent background music: great for setting the scene with traditional African sounds at networking events and corporate drinks receptions.
African Circus Performers
Many of the most popular African circus shows combine daring acrobatic moves with traditional costumes in astonishing performances packed full of energetic flips, spins and lifts. African acrobats create an exhilarating atmosphere at gala dinners, award ceremonies and conferences, WOWing guests as an after dinner energiser or in between conferences.
Versatile African acrobats can also perform ambient sets during drinks receptions and networking events to intrigue corporate guests or, alternatively, grab attendees’ attention at trade shows and exhibitions with thrilling, energetic movements. One of many distinctive types of African circus show is a black theatre performance. This includes acrobatic moves, elegant dance and light-based illusions to take your guests on an emotive journey through Africa. Using colourful props, traditional costumes and mind-boggling manoeuvres, African circus artists effortlessly captivate corporate audiences.
For a stupendous African entertainment show, we recommend you combine different genres to create a multi-dimensional stage performance. For example, complement graceful aerialists and African acrobats with a drum and fire act for a true African extravaganza!
