MAPENZI: A Dancer’s Love Affair with Dance, Body and the Arts! is a body positive documentary that demonstrates that one’s body size should not determine ones love for the arts, nor should it determine acceptance in any mainstream arts industry.

Bahiya Movement’s goal is to encourage a more conscious awareness around positive body acceptance for all in the art industry, as well as inspire youth to follow their dream and Believe In Self, regardless of their size, gender, or race. Allow your talent to speak volumes!
