Workshop description

We begin with a short dynamic African dancing performance, this is inspiring for students a great way to start. Then we introduction the dance and talk about its cultural significance 

Preliminary rhythm work to warm up, such as clapping /body percussion etc (a good ice breaker) followed by stretching and body isolations.

We then kick of the workshop by teach dynamic African dance movements to the students, once they have an understanding of these individual movements and can dance them confidently we join them together in sequence using drums to signal the change between steps and provide us with the traditional music for the dance.
