Dances of the African Diaspora

Dances of the African Diaspora

Dances of the African Diaspora explores movement-based concepts from the vast and culturally diverse continent of Africa. Students learn to execute polyrhythmic patterns and practice multiple types of call & response cues performed both verbally and physically. Our classes explore traditional folkloric dances, the use of weight, body isolation, and dancing with the drummer.
