Delve into the roots of Afro-Cuban folkloric dance with internationally renowned dancer Liethis Hechavarria and live drummers. Liethis will offer a comprehensive introduction to Afro-Cuban dance, teaching foundational movements and techniques, as well as the history and evolution of the dances as they traveled from Africa to Cuba. Featured cultures include Yoruba (Orisha dances), Congo (e.g. Palo) and Dahomey (e.g. Arará). The class will also include Rumba and popular styles such as comparsa and merengue. All levels are welcome. Join us as we light up the dance floor on fire with Cuban heat.
