Galumpha has won the Moers International Comedy Arts Prize.  That says a lot.  Irreverent and quirky, Galumpha guarantees to entertain with pattern-breaking choreography, gravity-defying lifts and balances, and a refreshingly self-effacing approach to Modern Dance.  Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy, and inventive choreography, Galumpha brings to life a world of imagination, beauty, muscle and merriment. The three performers create a sensory feast of images, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently bringing audiences to their feet. Galumpha is a triumphant mix of art and entertainment, offering world-class, award-winning choreography that is equally at home on the concert stage, at a comedy club or at an outdoor festival.

Galumpha has performed at more than 2000 venues in 30 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, at venues such as The Kennedy Center, The Kravis Center, the Singapore Arts Festival, the Shanghai International Arts Festival, on Broadway at the New Victory Theater, London’s Southbank Center, the Spoleto USA Festival, the First World Dance Festival in Caracas, Venezuela, and the Tollwood Festival in Munich, Germany to name a few.
