A Marimba player and a Shona traditional dancer, Makurumbandi’s professional career started with a grassroots theatre company called Savanna Arts in Mbare. At 19, Makurumbandi joined Dance Foundation Course, a project created by National Ballet of Zimbabwe. During a one-year apprenticeship with Tumbuka Dance Company, Markurumbandi’s dance training continued under Soukaina Edom Mafundikwa, Julie Knotenbelt and Neville Campbell. Makurumbandi has toured extensively in France and has been performing and holding workshops on Zimbabwean traditional dance and music across Europe.  He is our Visiting Teacher in Residence (April 2014-April 2015).
