Spring 2011 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This is a basic/beginners course in West African dance. This course will feature live drumming, warm-ups, across the floor sequences, routines, and an opportunity to demonstrate your self-expression in the community circle at the end. We will also have a warm-down as well as pay respect to the drummer/drum to end our classes. Basic terms, names, and vocabularies will be covered in class.
Course Requirements/Evaluation Criteria:
An open mind, a kind spirit, and a love for dance! For the women, you will need to bring a large piece of cloth to wrap the lower part of your body. Go to Joann's Fabrics to get the cloth. Very inexpensive or go to an African store or vendor. I will bring a few on the first day of class.
