Investigate the sounds and rhythms from across Africa.
Using movement and dance, let’s explore African culture. We’ll learn some traditional African dance moves and style, and explore how that relates to more modern forms of dance. Many countries in Africa have different myths and folklore, so let’s bring some alive through movement!

"Here are some reflections the children have made after the Dance Africa Workshop:
- It was an amazing experience, I felt happy to do it!
- African dance its amazing how hip hop and other music originated from Africa.
- We learnt a lot while doing the dance, there's always a story behind the harvest and it is very important.
- Harvest dance moves come from the process of harvest dance is part of their culture
- I was bursting with energy and the African dance made me think about music more.
- I would love to do it again and again and again.
We had an amazing Day! Thanks for coming to visit us!"
