WEST AFRICAN FUNK
Summer Master Classes 2015 TBA, STAY TUNED!
West African Funk,
is an Urban Technique class, that was started in 2010 and has developed and grown throughout the years. Currently this class is *only taught by workshops. It is a class open for the all level dancer that is in search for a deeper understanding of movement derivatives and its organic flow to rich African inspired beats. This class introduces and revises authentic traditional dance movements and technique that originate from Senegal, Guinea and Liberia with a twist of the popular Afrobeat moves; The Azonto, Gweta, and Coup Decalé. In addition be prepared with a sprinkle of Hip-Hop and yeni's own twist to everything that she does. Nothing ever stays the same...we grow and develop, as does our dancing. All levels welcome.
*This class is beginner friendly, but also challenges the person who has a more technical base. You will leave with drops of sweat on your skin and a smile on your face!
