African Dance

Zen Marie’s African dance class is a celebration of life. You will learn Djembe style dancing using rhythms and movements from Guinea, Mali and Senegal. The class will begin with body stretching, strengthening and toning warm-up, followed by simple yet highly energetic movements. This is an open-level class for beginner and intermediate dancers. Students should dress in loose comfortable clothing (if you choose to wear clothing) and may dance barefoot or in comfortable sandals. Bring a towel and water.
