Course Description: This course is a high-powered, rhythmic dance experience, bringing together the body, the mind, and the spirit in an energetic union of the music, dance, and oral tradition of the people of West Africa. Students learn regional songs of welcome and praise, accompanied by live drumming to provide an understanding of the relationship between the dancer and the musician and the common language they must speak in order to execute an African dance style.
