Kennedy Junior Muntanga, born and raised in Zambia, is a dancer and choreographer. Moving to Leeds (UK) at the age of 7, Kennedy’s passion for movement grew from his strong connection to Michael Jackson, in which he would choreograph short dances and host little competitions against his sister and friends. The reverence to dance was already embedded in him through his African heritage and has been an anchor and life line for him, and so Kennedy furthered his training and graduated in Ballet and Contemporary at the Rambert School in July 2019.

Before devoting himself to choreography, Kennedy has danced for companies such Akram Khan Company, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Humanhood, Robert Cohan CBE, Michael Keegan-Dolan, Alesandra Seutin, Raman Schlemmer and many more. He is now focused on being the Artistic Director of Kennedy Muntanga Dance Theatre, as well as Trinity Laban’s Youth Dance Company.
