Description

Woezo Africa Music and Dance Theatre presents Afro Urban Dance Workshops Vol 2: SOUTH AFRICAN GROOVES & COUPÉ-DÉCALÉ Dance Workshops with Nyasha Nyamaka and Wunmi Idowu!

Join us for our second workshop series highlighting some of Africa's urban dance styles, this time led by two of Calgary's own!

SOUTH AFRICAN GROOVES
with Nyasha Nyamaka
Focusing on Kwaito, House and Gqom music, Nyasha will be teaching some of the vernacular moves and grooves associated with some of these well known genres of South African music. The main focus of the workshop will be on the gqom-inspired bhenga style.

COUPÉ-DÉCALÉ
with Wunmi Idowu
Coupé-Décalé is a mixture of Ivory Coast and Congolese dance moves. The dance engages your whole body and has a faster tempo than Congolese rumba songs. The dance tries to illustrate the song and the song usually expresses everyday activities, sometimes famous figures, or current events.

We are excited to present these two styles to you and can't wait for you to join us!

Workshop Times:
South African Grooves: 2pm to 3pm
Coupé-Décalé: 3:15 to 4:15pm

Ticket Prices:
One Workshop: $20
Both Workshops: $35
Tickets can be purchased online OR on the day of, but please note we have LIMITED SPACE. Purchasing your ticket ahead of time will ensure that your spot is secure in the workshop event.
