African Dance

African dance refers mainly to the dance of Sub-Saharan Africa, and more appropriately African dances because of the many cultural differences in musical and movement styles. Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa. Burkina Faso is an excellent example of the vibrant West African culture and is known for its music, drumming, art, and dance. Ouagadougou is the capital it is often nicknamed Ouaga by the locals.

  • Houzaifa Konditamde, our newest instructor, was born in Western African. He is a fierce dancer, Deaf and will teach in traditional dance of his region ​Burkina Faso.
