Afro Urban Dance Workshops Vol 4: NDOMBOLO & STEPPING Workshops

Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre Inc. presents Afro Urban Dance Workshops Vol 4: NDOMBOLO & STEPPING Workshops with Nyasha Nyamaka and Nelson Arsenault!
Join us for our fourth installment of our workshop series highlighting modern dance styles from Africa and the Afro-Diaspora!
NDOMBOLO
with Nyasha Nyamaka

Focusing on vocabulary, drills & choreography, Nyasha will be teaching some of the moves & grooves associated with the Congolese genre of music & dance known as Ndombolo. This style incorporates a lot of waist movements and full body grooves.
STEPPING
with Nelson Arsenault

Nelson will be taking us through the movement and culture of the artform of Step dancing. Taking inspiration from African folk & African American traditions & popular culture, this high energy class will involve poly-rhythmic body percussion, vocalizations and group coordination.
We are excited to present these two styles to you and can't wait for you to join us!

Both of the workshops will be held at the Gray Family Eau Claire YMCA in the West Studio on the 3rd floor. PLEASE bring some ID so the YMCA staff can let you upstairs.
