Afrobeats with The Black Stars Collective

Afrobeats dance is directly influenced by the Afrobeats music genre which originates in West Africa in countries including Nigeria and Ghana, and across the African diaspora. Afrobeats dance comes directly from the popular street dances in Africa; such as Kuduro, Azonto, Soukous, and more. All these different genres are typically inspired by local tribal forms of dances that morphed and developed over time. This workshop is for all ages.

We have two back to back sessions of the same workshop in order to accommodate more participants. However, each workshop will only have 7 participants so please register below to book your spot.
