A vibrant, fun and highly energetic African dance workshop suited for all levels. This is an opportunity for people to experience a little taste of African culture. Lead by Yenenesh Nigusse, a passionate exponent of dance — not just African styles, but also Latin, hip hop, and contemporary genres, Yen will share some Ghanaian & Guinean dance from West Africa and a taste of South African gumboot dancing. The dancing will be accompanied by live drumming with a djembe and doun doun drums.
The following are examples of sessions scheduled across the weekend (note: days will be subject to change until the final program release early March 2018) However in planning your weekend many of our international guests will be with us for the duration of the Festival appearing on panels, telling their personal stories in a WOW Bite session and offering advice in Speed Mentoring.
