Summer Dance Intensive Guest Artist Highlight: West African Dance Elective Leader, Will Brown

WEST AFRICAN ELECTIVE: West African Dance is a style of movement that is musical, upbeat and very expressive. In Africa, the movement is used for communication and telling stories of the people. This class will focus on dances from West Guinea. We will do a full body warm-up, travel across the floor with movements that will prepare the body for choreography. This class has a percussionist, who will add to the high energy we create. Be prepared to sweat, smile and have fun!
