Maggi Bönning - Dancehall Teacher - motion*s

Swaggi Maggi

Regular Teacher
Dancehall Urban Dance

Maggi has been teaching Dancehall since 2005. She is self-taught due to the lack of good dance training in this style in Germany. To further her knowledge, she embarked on several trips to Kingston, Jamaica, where she completed an intensive Dancehall training in 2011. She has since organized dance trips to Jamaica, dance workshops and camps, as well as Dancehall parties in Germany. Since 2012, she has worked as a tour manager for Jamaican dancers in Europe under the label “TopUp Production”. Maggi attaches great importance to the culture behind the dance, which led her to study the anthropological side of Dancehall.
