Drum and dance classes
 Moussa Traore and Michele Laura

African dance is multi-faceted and rich in that every set of movements is related to a dong and meaning, as well as a rhythm. We work on a rhythm for 8 weeks. The first half of the class Moussa will teach the rhythm, djembe and dundun pattern. The second half, Michele will lead the dance. The song is integrated over the 8 weeks.

$200 (8 weeks, drum + dance), $120 (8 weeks, drum only/dance only)
