Friday night Stress relief and rejuvenation!
The movements learned are based on traditional Zimbabwean dance and inspired by Rujeko’s dance experience in FELA! the musical , the rhythmic intricacies from her Zimbabwean dance traditions, the lineal symmetry of Guinea dance and the centering required for the dancers of the Congo. Participants will get to dance to the legendary music of the likes of Miriam Makeba, Fela Kuti and Brenda Fassie as well as rising contemporary Zimbabwean musicians. These are artists who have each had a profound impact on their culture, their politics and people by inspiring change for the future. The class will be a breakdown of African dance technique and aesthetic through repetitive movement as well as combinations.
