About this class

Join us for a new class steeped in the African Diaspora from the Caribbean nation of Haiti. With elements of traditional West African Dance, Afro-Haitian dance has greatly influenced the modern dance world, largely through the research and exposure of the legendary Katherine Dunham. Laure breaks down the technique and explains the origins and meaning of the movement and its accompanying rhythm. The result is a refreshingly active dance experience and an enlightening cultural experience. This athletic dance form is perfect for dancers of all backgrounds and levels.This high energy class can be taught to anyone with a passion to move, so no dance experience is required.In this class, students will discover the beauty of Haitian Folkloric dance through a lively torso, pelvis and leg movements accompanied by strong rhythmic live drumming.
