Rhythm and Dance: A Foray into African Movement and Drumming

Sunday, November 22, 2015 

We will be learning Yankadi and Macru, dances from western Africa. These dances are usually done together on the full moon. Yankadi is a slower exciting dance with a swinging drum beat. Macru picks up the tempo up a little and finishes the dance leaving you full of energy. These classes are great for beginners and those that have taken classes before. Dancing is great for your mind, body and soul. This event will allow you to meet others in the drum and dance community of Southern Ohio. It will also shed some light on cultural traditions from Africa's golden past. 

$15/adult, $10/student

Instructors: Dance - C C Ruchti, Drum - Lawrence R Greene
