The class intends to provide a better understanding and appreciation of the various African based cultures that shaped Afro-Brazilian dance and dances of the African Diaspora. The class is structured so that the students have an extensive experience in all elements of dance "rhythm, space, movement, effort, time, shape, body and performance."
