Biography

Lucky has worked as a professional singer, dancer, choreographer and arts lobbyist for more than 20 years. As one of the core and founder members of Black Umfolosi (internationally-acclaimed Zimbabwean song and dance group), Lucky has performed to audiences from 10 to 50,000 people world-wide, shared stages with the likes of Jimmy Cliff and Peter Gabriel, performed to Nelson Mandela and appeared on programmes such as BBC's Blue Peter and The Jools Holland Show.

An accomplished workshop leader, Lucky's hugely popular workshops are conducted with a communal and 'feel free to experiment' approach and his methods highlight how much participants can achieve, both on an individual and group level. His flexible approach to learning has made him an ideal workshop leader not just in schools, but also in community centres, arts-based training, at conferences and general public workshops.
