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.
