Class Description

Lamine’s classes are designed to teach different styles of West African dance with an emphasis on high energy, fun and the healthy benefits of a great workout. All classes start with a very thorough stretching warm-up, and continue for a total of 1.5 hours. Live drumming, an explanation of the rhythm of the dance, and a focused teaching approach of breaking down the steps lead to an exciting experience of rhythmic movement. Classes are open to men and women, all levels and ages.
