MONTHLY WORKSHOPS IN AFRICAN DANCE – OPEN LEVEL for ages 11 to adult
With Nkoula Badila
During our class sessions we will be learning different Traditional dances of Ancestral Africa, accompanied by live percussion. These movements will be celebratory of the celebration of life. The students will learn Dances of cultivation, rights of passage, cleansing, dance of warriors, and welcoming in royalty. We will weave in the lessons of the day and share reflections from what we learned to support a wholesome experience of the class.
This workshop series takes place in lieu of Community Jazz on the following Wednesdays: October 5 from 5:45-6:45pm, and November 9 and December 7, from 5:45-7:15PM.
