Together with our partners, Visit Rwanda, last month we welcomed the National Ballet of Rwanda, Urukerereza, for a tour of Emirates Stadium.
The group's tour came ahead of their performance at the UK's national service of celebration for Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey, on March 13, attended by HM King Charles III, the Queen Consort, members of the UK's royal family, and dignitaries and representatives from around the Commonwealth group of nations.
The name Urukerereza translates to “the one that causes delay”, which refers to how their long-running and exhilarating performances hold the attention of the audience.
The award-winning musical group regularly takes part in dance festivals and performances around the world with their signature long-running shows that feature traditional Rwandan songs, drums and dances.
