Sunday afternoon Intore dancing
Imbabazi Intore dance troupe has been performing regularly for visitors on the last Sunday of every month since early 2012. The dances stem all the way back from the seventies, where Roz’s love of traditional dancing started this simple tradition as entertainment for her visitors from around the country.
For over five decades, the tradition has steadily grown and more and more people from all over the world began to hear about the dancing. Her small garden in Imbabazi became extremely popular and the Sunday Intore dancing became THE place to be.
Enjoy traditional Intore dancing and cultural performances while taking tea and biscuits in the beautiful surroundings of the cottage gardens. Visitors are more than welcome to arrive early with a picnic lunch to enjoy in the gardens or to join us for lunch served in Roz’s cottage.
Our dancers have created their own troupe and are always excited to dance for visitors to Imbabazi. The 16-strong troupe entertain visitors with their traditional warrior stories and marriage tales.
