Assane Kouyate: Traditional West African Dance Workshop

Decatur Recreation Center, Dance Studio
231 Sycamore St, Decatur, GA 30030

Come join the dance. For participants of all ages and levels who are ready for a fun-filled, energy packed workshop! Learn traditional dances (primarily of Senegal, Mali and Guinea), and develop an awareness of how song traditions work hand in hand with dance movement as a means of expression and communication of daily life in West African cultures. Dancing is deep-rooted in African heritage and is used to tell stories depicting both the culture and history of the land and people. Instructor Assane Kouyate (Senegal) comes from a long line of “griots,” the history tellers and keepers of West African culture.
