Week 6 - 10

Saturday 13 January to 10 February 2018 (inclusive)

 10 - 11 am African Dance The basic steps of West African dance are introduced and there will also be a focus on working with a rhythm and choreography. The first thing that will be introduced in a West African dance class will be the drum. This instrument traditionally leads, accompanies and calls all of the dancing feet. Dancers will be introduced to this call and will learn to respond to a call rather than counting whilst dancing.
West African dances are based around a story. Whether its about initiation, a dance about showcasing masks, birth, death or an encouragement to the local farmers, there seems to be a dance/rhythm for most important life events. Great for fun, fitness and emotional and physical wellbeing.
