ms_dnk_fs-08147

Let’s dance! Afro Fusion combines steps from the styles e.g. Azonto, Konto and Ndombolo.

The workshop is led by a performer Hawa Janlo. Hawa will use her experience in Afro Fusion dance, mixing different styles from the African continent. There are steps from the styles e.g. Azonto (Ghana), Konto (Nigeria), Ndombolo (Congo).

We welcome 30 dancers. The duration of the workshop is 60 min. Please bring with you clothes you feel comfortable to move in.

The workshop is based on some elements of the performance “The Lava Forest” (it is not necessary to see the performance to participate in the workshop, but we strongly recommend both).

School groups are requested to register for the workshop through Kultus. Individual participants can register by getting in touch with Martta Partio.
