African Dance for Everyone

Saturday, February 23, 2019

Try African dance to live drums with West African Cultural Arts Institute.

In Africa, dance is not a separate art, but part of everyday life -- a spontaneous form of release, expression, and fun. This workshop is designed for beginning and emerging dancers as a lively introduction to traditional West African rhythm and dance styles. Taught by Andrea DiPalma Yansane, with live drumming lead by Alseny Yansane, co-founders of the West African Cultural Arts Institute.

West African Cultural Arts Institute is a non-profit with a mission to share the joy and passion of West African culture through vibrant educational programs focusing on music and dance; advocate for authentic, source artists from Guinea; and create charitable projects in Guinea that promote artistic, emotional, and physical health.
