West African Dance teaches the traditional African movement of daily living activities and celebrations. The moves are graceful, aerobic, sensuous, sharp, and require one to extend their level of energy based on their level of fitness. It is a style of movement with set patterns that follow the African drum rhythms. The starting level is based on the ability and level dance students’ fitness. The beginning combinations are simpler and require less energy. But as one becomes more experienced the combinations become more complicated. Singing always goes along with the dance.
