ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Spirit of Africa is a fun, exciting, interactive workshop that uses dance movement, music, and song to tell the story of the African people. Participants will learn about how the everyday lives of African people transfers through the arts, where examples of their daily activities, values and customs are portrayed. This workshop consists of a series of movements and song and drum rhythms from different parts of West Africa, followed by a formal instruction of a traditional dance piece, and ending with a “cookup”, where participants are able to freely express themselves. Participants should come ready to move and have fun!

*Please note that this is a WORKSHOP SERIES and that participants who would like to attend are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO REGISTER AND ATTEND ALL sessions of the workshop*

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Born on the island of Trinidad and Tobago, Lesley Waldron started her journey in dance at the tender age of 5. She has trained in Modern, Caribbean Folk, and African Dance. In 1993, she joined the Ghanaian group Sankofa Drum and Dance Ensemble. In the Twi language, “Sankofa” means “go back and retrieve”; which is exactly what Lesley did, travelling to Ghana in 2007 to obtain a degree in West African dance and community development. Today, Lesley’s goal is to use the arts as a tool to educate young minds and inspire youth to elevate themselves.
