Despite many curve balls thrown at them — the novel coronavirus pandemic, Haiti’s lockdown, the insecurity, and the election crisis — Konpa Danse Challenge’s inaugural season will continue to completion.

The competition started in July 2019 and was supposed to last six months, but is now set to end in October. Some of the noteworthy remaining participants are Aglaé Pressoir and his wife Gaël Pressoir, and siblings Alexandre and Jorancie Mayas. Source
