Afro Fusion

Dance Workshop by Luana Madikera
In the frame of Tanznacht Forum: Feminist School Berlin

This Afro Fusion Workshop invites everyone interested to discover different modern African dances (Azonto, Ndombolo, Afro House, Naja Street Styles and others). Together we will try out different steps, train our musicality, work on combos and a choreography and learn something about the respective cultural background of the different dance styles. We will playfully use what we have learned to express joy and energy while dancing together. The workshop is structured step by step, so that every learning type and every learning speed can find attention.

Attention: The places are limited and a registration is necessary. We urgently ask you to cancel  in advance if you can't come.
