About this program

Participants will explore the fundamentals of Afro-Caribbean dance while learning traditional movements and then integrating them into a short choreography. Throughout the workshop, information about the history, native people of the Caribbean, music, traditional clothes and movements associated with these dances is shared by the artist, allowing the participants to anchor their learning in the cultural context from which these dances originate. This unique blend of cultures mixed with the traditional and ceremonial rites of passage of the native people of the Caribbean has created the vibrancy and celebratory nature of Afro-Caribbean Dance.
