Fergus Plans for the Dance Industry
Firstly, he really want to be of great influence in the dance industry and then get to teach others who are seeking for training and knowledge on dance. (Though he has started in his little way).
Secondly, he will like to give scholarship to younger ones to train in the best dance schools and institutions home and abroad. when he have the capacity to do so, he said.
Thirdly, he wants to build dance studios and donate to dance teams that he feels are ambitious and serious about dance, who are without a good rehearsal place.
Lastly, he’ll like to teach people the business of dance and how to survive as a dance artist in this era, and to create ways at which they can get some opportunities to improve financially.

About His Dance Projects and Choreography
He’s a versatile dancer, but his major dance styles are Contemporary and African traditional dances.
He also does a little of salsa, hip hop, and afro pop.
Actually, contemporary dance gives him the door to express his self better.
In our recent research and interview we found out from him that he feels happy, satisfied and more fulfilled when dancing through improvisation.
Watch this Piece Below
Last month, he had a dance concert in Jos. That dance piece seeks to answer the question of why we neglect some elements of our dance culture to embrace foreign cultures fully. Just wanted to remind us not to forget our roots as Africans in our dance displays.
He’s also planning on creating more dance pieces and Choreography that will touch humanity and speak to their hearts about things happening within then and inside them which they may be blind to see or dead to feel them.
He’s an advocate for Reawakening.
His team was given the Gym at Chillers portakabin (which is one of their sponsors) in Jos to serve as their studio, as it is spacious.
The dance lessons they offer are:
Afro pop and latin dance styles, but they’re planning on starting contemporary dance lessons very soon.
