Participants will experience the Spirit of Africa through rhythm and movement. This exciting workshop is a fun and interactive activity that uses dance movement, music and song to tell the story of the African people. Participants will learn about how the everyday lives of African people transfers through the arts, where examples of their daily activities, values and customs are portrayed. This workshop will consist of a series of movements, song and drum rhythms from different parts of West Africa, followed by a formal instruction of a traditional dance piece ending with a "cookup" where participants are able to freely express themselves. In partnership with Akoma Performing Arts.
