It's about the groove! Based in rhythms from Africa and the diaspora, Contemporary African Dance is an all level class where students explore full body expression rooted in West African, Caribbean, and American dance traditions. All levels welcome. Focus on wellness, community, improvisation, fluidity across movement styles, and delicious self-expression... Come get some!
