West African dance traditionally pulls movements from everyday life of chores, work and imitating animals.  African dance uses all these types of gestures to tell a story or to celebrate life.

This dance performance is a mixture of traditional West African, West Indian and Afrobeat dance moves. It is a total body workout, the best cardio you will ever have.

Classes are held at various locations in JC and in The Heights. Nearby classes are held at Grassroots Community Space 54 Coles street.
