Teambuilding Dancing

Make Room for Fun in the Workplace

Work is serious business. However, we shouldn’t forget that workers also need to let their hair down once in a while. Otherwise, productivity falls and enthusiasm fades.

Try our free teambuilding video for group activities & reap the rewards, including:

  • Increased productivity
  • Happier environment
  • Less conflict
  • Increased creativity
  • Better Communication

That’s music to our ears!

Free, Unique Team Building

Sometimes, getting team dynamics right is not about having a team building guru come in but about remembering the joy of working as a team.

It is easy in the hurley burley of day-to-day tasks, deadlines and pressures to forget we are working with other human beings. The pressure to get a job done can sometimes over shadow the team connection. We forget to rely on each other.

If you look around and find your people aren’t gelling together, here’s a quick, easy & fun way to connect your team so they can thrive.

Who are you?

Master Drummer Tuza, the Artistic Director of African Beat started a band in his hometown of Ghana back in the early 90’s called Salaka. In Tuza’s language, Salaka means sharing which is Tuza’s passion & purpose – to share the music & traditions of his tribe with the world.

One of Salaka’s original members was Sammy, who also happens to be Tuza’s nephew. Sammy is an exceptional dancer and drummer. Having toured here annually since 2008, Sammy now calls Australia home.

Fun Fact: The drummer in the video is another of Tuza’s nephews, Ezekiel –yes, a very talented family!

African Beat specialises in interactive drumming – bringing people together through the power of music.


How does it work?

It’s so simple –

  1. Get a screen (connected to the internet) prepared
  2. Gather your staff where they can all see the screen
  3. Press play
  4. Giggle with your team as they open up through dance

What’s the catch?

There’s always a catch! True to their name, the Salaka Ensemble wants to share their rich cultural heritage with the world. We would love to have EVERYONE drum with us to experience the powerful impact it can have on individuals & groups. It would be impossible to get the whole population drumming with us, so this is our compromise. African Dancing is simple & can be done without props.

Plus, we secretly know that you’ll love it so much, you’ll be sure to book us for an African Drumming session for your next team building day.

What our clients say

Just a quick note to say the guys were fantastic!!! Thanks so much for a high quality excellent half hour we had with your guys!!!

Laura Mazin

You guys have been recommended as you were involved in a meeting a few years ago that people are still talking about today….Thank you to you and your guys for African Beat team building exercise! The event and the guys were the subject of the rest of the night’s discussions! Good fun with lots of sore hands and sore cheeks (from smiling) afterwards!

It was fantastic!  We had a rating card for all activities at the end, and your section scored all round 4s and 5s (out of 5) … a really nice surprise being that they are all actuaries that usually don’t get into that “let your hair down and go crazy” type of thing easily.

Your crew were so fun and engaging and entertaining.  It was the perfect addition to our conference.

Tamaryn Hurly

African Beat was probably the best idea Oporto ever thought of!

Andrew Guerreiro

When we were looking for different team building exercises for our recent conference, I came across African Beat. I was looking for something that was unusual, that would take people out of their comfort zone, where people from totally different levels were equal in standing, and most importantly would be great fun. My expectations were exceeded by the troop from African Beat. It took very little time to get everyone in the groove and working together as a team and people who thought they had no musical bones in their body were getting right in to it. The African Beat team quickly built up great energy in the room was extraordinary. The session was fantastic fun and had people stepping out of their comfort zone with little hesitation. If you’re looking for something unusual that people will remember forever and helps build teams, then African Beat is for you!
