About This Activity

Description

This course is closed to further registration.

The class is being presented by Soul In Motion Players, Inc.

Come and explore the vibrant, expressive, energy-filled world of West African dance. Learn the movements, style, rhythms, and significance of dances from West Africa, all while having a fantastic time with professional instructors. This class is taught at the same time as our West African Drumming class, so students will enjoy being accompanied by live drumming.

It's suggested that dance students wear a traditional lapa for the class. A lapa is a large piece of African fabric that is wrapped around the waist of the dancer.
