Description

You're invited to join international dancer and inspiring instructor Malena Amusa - a proud Tower Grove neighbor - for our exciting Community African Dance Class.

Geared for beginners, the class shares the beautiful culture and movement of West Africa, with a focus on Guinea and Mali, home of the amazing hand-percussion / Djembe music and rich village culture which has attraced millions of students worldwide.

Adults and children are invited for this overall positive, energizing experience. We'll cover language (Malinke), songs, movement and various traditions from Africa.

For any questions, please don't hesitate to write Malena directly at Malenanow@gmail.

FAQs

I am new to the Intersect Arts building. Where should I park?

Intersect Arts is a renovated church-turned community arts building with goregous, modern studios, including a dance, pottery, paint and music studio. Please park on the Texas side of the building - where you'll see the main entrace. Our door man will be down there to let you in and sign you up.

What to bring?

A water bottle, towel, and your awesome self decked in comfy clothes. Also, the class is barefoot unless its medically contraindicated. If you have any particular needs or requests, please let me know.

Help! I can't dance...

There's a saying in West Africa... "If you can walk, you can dance." We soar off this very belief that each of us has the rhythm in life inside and if we apply our minds and spirits to rhthmic movement, we can not only dance, but generate the great joy and mental, social, and physical health benefits of the art form.
