Nigeria: 11-year old dancer challenges ballet stereotypes

A recent video of 11-year-old Anthony Mmesoma Madu dancing in the rain went viral with the likes of Hollywood superstar Viola Davis as well as other celebrities sharing the video.

Anthony is among the 12 students at the Leap of Dance Academy in Lagos.

The academy, founded in 2015, could be the brainchild of Daniel Ajala Owoseni who has been been teaching ballet free of charge without a dance space.
