Students will learn of the rich cultural heritage of African Dance in this dynamic and interactive incursion program.
African dance expression stems from a cultural need for the African people to celebrate victories, harvests, marriages, the birth of a child and various ceremonies. The dances are energetic, fun, expressive and sometimes eccentric, and men, women and children are all involved.
