Since 2013, Akaraaka has worked closely with Akosua Boakye BEM, Director of AkomaAsa Performing Arts Academy to deliver arts provision for children (aged 7 - 16) offering them classes in the disciplines of dance, drama, voice and music. Ukachi is the Programme Manager for the academy and teaches Dance and Drama on the Saturday and holiday programmes.
AkomaAsa Performing Arts Academy (APAA) works to engage and inspire children and young people. The work supports and guides them to become socially, academically, culturally and artistically knowledgeable.
APAA uses the disciplines of the arts by engaging children and young people in drumming/percussion, dancing, acting, singing, musical theatre, performances, and arts & crafts workshops.
Founded by Akosua Boakye in 2012, APAA works with industry experts to provide training and access to mainstream dance and performing arts opportunities in Western and African Diaspora art forms. APAA utilises the arts to uplift and transform the lives of children and young people (7-16 yrs). The mission is to develop the next generation of culturally diverse artists for tomorrow’s world. We work to ignite creativity and build confidence and self-esteem so that children and young people can discover, explore and create, thus developing into resilient and happy individuals.
