Uzoamaka Nwankpa | Board of Directors

Uzo is a dance facilitator, entrepreneur, performer, registered nurse and an advocate for healing through dance. Originally from Enugu Nigeria, Uzo is a member of the Igbo tribe (formerly known as Biafra). After the Biafrans lost the Nigerian civil war, there arose an urgency in her family to promote and preserve the cultural practices. Uzo has infused her education with her passion for dance to create a program promoting the positive health effects of dance and movement called The Uzo Method Project. She is nationally known for her dynamic and holistic therapy sessions.
