100 Causes


about us

#DANCELIKEMANDELA is a global dance event bringing together music collectives, activists, and people worldwide on Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday to positively engage their communities.


Dance Like Mandela is organized by REPRESENT Global, a public non-profit chaired by Kweku Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela. The organization's goal is to shift culture by making pressing humanitarian issues relevant to a digital and experience-driven generation. The organization is currently run by a diverse group of volunteers, with the goal of becoming a fully fledged global foundation that ushers a new era of social entrepreneurs, activists, and humanitarians.
