Key Principles of Igbo Dance

Here at NK Dance Services, we believe that there are 9 principles of Igbo Dance, which not only enables us to work towards mastery, but are also key guiding principles of life.


We do the right thing, even when no one is watching or expecting us to. This is our core value as it lets people know what we stand for. Ezi Omume (Good Character) is at the heart of NK Dance Services.

To dance with integrity is to radiate the world. It signifies a strength of character, accountability, respect towards others and establishes a strong sense of self worth.


We strive for excellence in everything we do. We believe in providing an unparalleled dance experience where creativity, precision, and passion converge. We push boundaries, embrace challenges, and aspire for perfection in every movement.

To dance with excellence, is to excel without limitations and beyond expectation. Through the pursuit of excellence, we achieve our goals, overcome obstacles, make a positive impact on the world around us and leave a legacy of exceptional achievements.

Serving Others

To lead is to serve. We serve others through dance by unleashing the unspoken potential of many through education, encouragement, support and creating an atmosphere where others can freely express themselves through dance. We are dedicated to sharing the joy of dance beyond the dance floor, reaching out to inspire and enrich lives and creating a positive impact that resonates far beyond the stage.

To dance is to serve the hearts of others by bringing joy to their face. It empowers individuals to create a ripple effect of kindness and generosity, fostering a more compassionate and caring society.


We are imperfect, but continuously improving; knowledgeable, but continuously learning; unique, but always fostering a sense of community and unity. We are audaciously authentic and continuously reflecting to ensure that our guiding principles enable us to celebrate Igbo Culture in its richness.

To dance with authenticity is to dance from the heart, with honesty, vulnerability and a willingness to let go of self consciousness or fear.


We embrace challenges as opportunities to innovate, learn and grow. Our commitment to resilience empowers us to overcome obstacles, inspire creativity, and achieve lasting excellence. It's not just about weathering storms; it's about dancing in the rain and emerging stronger, united and more capable than ever before.

To dance with resilience means persevering through mistakes, finding strength in vulnerability, and using setbacks as stepping stones for growth.


We dance with confidence and foster an environment where everyone can embrace their unique ability, express themselves dance, continue to improve through practice and trust their body’s capability - always without judgment.

To dance with confidence is to believe in your abilities. It is a testament to your perseverance, and a beautiful expression of your inner strength.


We believe that Igwe bu Ike (Unity is Strength). This symbolizes our belief in the power of dance to unite, inspire and transform. Our unity brings us together, synchronizes our movements and builds meaningful connections and fosters an environment with unwavering support towards each other.

To dance in unison is to inspire others, foster positive relationships, and create a lasting legacy of togetherness and understanding. Igwe bu Ike (Unity is Strength)!


We believe in honoring every dancer's unique journey and fostering an environment where mutual respect prevails. Our commitment to respect extends from the studio floor to every interaction, creating a culture of kindness, understanding, and support - making our dance family truly exceptional.

To dance with respect is to create a world where kindness prevails and where the harmony of mutual respect resonates in every interaction.

Hard Work

We believe in the transformative power of dedication, perseverance and commitment. Through the relentless pursuit of excellence, we achieve remarkable results, push boundaries, and exceed expectations. We recognize that challenges are opportunities in disguise, and with hard work as our guiding principle, we turn challenges into triumphs, making a meaningful difference in everything we do.

To dance and work hard, is to continuously improve. It's about putting in the effort, even when the path is challenging,and persisting through obstacles with determination and resilience.
