International Entrepreneur Ekandem Essiet has his hands in a variety of
successful business endeavors — including charity efforts, with an
organization entitled Miami Dancers Relief, a multifaceted entertainment
label BNW Entertainment, and even leads a hand in global education, a
thriving actor and professional choreographer/dancer.

Miami Dancers Relief is working to bring hope, light, and help to those who
need it most. Through direct outreach, community engagement, and
collective partnership, Miami Dancers Relief is working to raise money and
awareness for performing artists affected by the covid-19 pandemic. Since
theaters and auditoriums have shut their doors and common spaces have
been unable to host audiences, many who are working to establish careers
as performers have been blindsided and are in urgent need of assistance.

BNW Entertainment gathers representatives from several agencies, artists, managers, and other key players in the entertainment industry to view the dancers/choreographers in an arena where the composed performances are an immaculate depiction of the best dance has to offer. What this does is offer the dancers that “opportunity” to be seen and recognized without having to stress about traveling near nor far hoping for a chance to be viewed by the aforementioned individuals; all while going through a strict training regimen to prepare for a successful career.
