This workshop is appropriate for all levels. Join Julia Chigamba to experience the beauty of traditional African dance and move to the beat of live African drumming. It's a great work out! Dancers complete the workshop in three separate phases: Phase 1 includes a thorough warm up; Phase 2 energizes the mind and body while participants learn choreographed African dance movements; Phase 3 includes calming to cool down the body. Note: Dance is barefoot so wear comfortable clothing that allows free movement.
