One of her most recognised achievements breaking the Guinness World Record for “Longest Dance Party” at the Nokia Silverbird Danceathon in 2006, after she and her crew danced for 55hours and 40minutes.
In 2017, she created ‘The Dance Workshop’ a dance convention aimed at training and mentoring professional dancers as well as promoting cultural exchange within the Nigerian dance industry. The 2017 Edition featured America’s leading choreographer, AY Hollywood.
With over a decade’s worth of experience as a professional dancer, Kaffy has developed innovative visualisation-based methods for teaching dance and dance fitness in an accelerated-learning format.
