They Dance for Rain is a dance-making project in Nairobi Kenya working with various arts-for-social- change organizations with dance and photography. They Dance For Rain began in 2011 when dance artist Stefanie Weber raised funds to bring along a duffle bag of donated Tap Shoes with her to Nairobi for a visit to a good friend. Since then the project has grown into an annual residency that boasts of being the most artfully documented, organized and sustained introduction of Rhythm Tap Dance in Kenya and possibly East Africa.
They Dance For Rain is directed by Stefanie Weber in collaboration with fine-arts photographer/artist Monika Pizzichemi and project assistant and tap dancer Josephine McDonald.
