Online Haitian Folklore Dances
Haitian Folkloric Dancing is one of the richest in the Caribbean. It inventories over 100 different dances; very specific and with deep significance. At Se Pa'm Dance Company, we will concentrate on the most familiar ones; Kongo, Nago, Petwo, Ibo, Yanvalou. The classes are conducted on recorded music, alternating as well with live drumming. A well rounded approach has to include the musicality portion in order to understand the different rhythms, their purpose, context and role in relation with the dances. It is as important (if not more) than the dance itself. The classes are conducted barefooted. We recommend comfortable gym clothes. Zoom link will be provided via email once booking confirmed.
