This high energy class will focus on the dances and rhythms of Guinea, West Africa. Joti has studied West African dance from Guinea for over a decade with master dancers Moustapha Bangoura, Alseny Soumah, Naby Bangoura, Youssouf Koumbassa and Mamady Sano.

West African (live drumming) with alhassane
i liked the drumming. it was about as fast paced as an all levels dance class should be, I just couldn't catch on.
West African (live drumming) with kamesha
it's really fun! but the instructions could be clearer
West African (live drumming) with Joti
Love this instructor, and the drums are cool, but during this session things were out of synch for me. But I watched the regular class dancers and they seemed to groove so likely I need more time here
West African (live drumming) with Joti
All ages, all levels, all fun. Instructor knowledgable, trained, and encouraging. Good space with waiting room. Studio across from 24th St BART station so very easy on public transit. I've been wanting to try this dance studio out for years, and have heard only good things.
