Get Schooled on the A-Z of African Dance! (video)

A-Z of african dance

Africa is an enormous and diverse continent. So it makes sense that there would be hundreds of different dance styles and sub-cultures. Here is one compilation of African dance forms demonstrated by "The Dance Hall" in Senegal.

Really wonderful seeing all these kinds of movement, so many of which were unknown to me.  I'm a big fan of Pantsula from South Africa from seeing it in that Basement Jaxx video earlier this year. Other styles that made me want to see more: Bolo, Gweta, JazzĂ©, Ndem, and Zoropoto. (And "Q" made me laugh.)

 

Awesome production values on this video too!
