Hi you all!
I have been dancing different African dances from young age on and off and also went through a teachers training for it and taught a beginners class in 2009. This was a long time ago and my moves might not be the same but the joy is still there! I would think it would be really fun to have a class and share this with who ever would want to take part of learning some moves from mostly West Africa! I don't claim any particular dance style, but teach my interpretation of everything I learnt through the years. Mostly it's to have fun and for you to shake a bit. I live in a warehouse in North Oakland, not far from the Bart Rockridge and we will dance here. Preferably barefoot and with clothes so you can move freely. If you have a yoga mat, bring it so we can stretch after cause the floor is a bit cold. The lesson will be aprox. 1 hour with warm up and stretching. We wont have any live drums but super fun african music. Afterwards I invite everyone for Swedish pancakes!
Sunday April 21
All dance levels welcome!
