Ayodele Drum and Dance West African Dance Class is an adult class designed to provide an energetic experience in a cultural context.
Sabar is a traditional dance that originates from Senegal, West Africa. This dynamic style incorporates rhythmic combinations of jumping, hip twisting, high-knee lifting, and arm swinging and is always accompanied by crisp snapping drum rhythms played by live drummers.
This intermediate class will focus on development of technique and fluidity of movement. The floor warm-up will help the student increase strength and flexibility while the stylized combinations will challenge the dancer to improve musicality and coordination.
After a five year hiatus, the New Works program returns with two new works by Artistic Director Rachel Damon and premieres by guest artist Anjal Chande and commissioned choreographers Chrissy Martin and Michelle Modrzejewski.
