About meThe music, art, literature, and cultural practices of Africa have provoked interest and respect throughout the world. The old belief that Africa is somehow childlike in its cultural development has been denounced as people become more familiar with the rich traditions of the continent.
The material and inherent value of African art steadily increases in the world market. The dance, music and literature of these peoples have found their way into houses and classrooms around the globe.
A recent study revealed that African dances are classified under aerobic sports, permitting a dancer to burn between 0.143 to 0.181 ckal/kg/min, which can only be compared to swimming or 100 meters race.
Performing African dances blends leisure to physical activities. It gives joy and an insight of what nature can look like.
This course will showcase a culture that is still virgin and unknown by many. People will learn verbal and non-verbal body languages.
