Dates and Times of Class: 4 Sessions; Sundays, April 16, 23, 30, May 7 (12pm-1pm)
Ages: All Ages
Cost: $80

Description:
This African Dance Class will focus on dance movement, self-expression and identity which offers participants an opportunity to understand specific dance movements and their connection to traditional and daily life practices such as birth, marriage, harvest, transition, rain, fertility etc. In this program, traditional dance rhythms will be explored to create emotional and physical connection through storytelling and rhythmic drumbeats.

The program includes:
– A warm-up: designed to stretch while focusing on breathing to release stress and prepare the body to move freely.
– A breakdown of the steps: Learning simple and basic steps that relate to daily life activities to illustrate a story
– Upbeat execution of dance moves: Choreographing dance steps learned at a higher speed with live drumming around a circle
– Solo improvisation: Showcasing steps learned inside of the dance circle and or free-style movements inside of the dance circle to self-express and connect movements to the exhilarating sounds of the drum to create rhythm.
The duration of each class is 60 mins and is accompanied by live drummers!
