African Dance Workshops
Interactive African dance workshops are suitable for events, corporate functions, conferences, children parties, birthdays, family events, visitors, celebrations and can be done with groups from 10 – 300 people either in combination with interactive drumming. Movement and fun at the same time!
In the African dance workshop we use body percussion and other type dances to engage, interact and learn about rhythm. It is also a good work-out exercise.
What African dances can you learn?
- South African gumboot dance: body percussive dance

Experience the soothing sound of the Kalimba! In the Kalimba workshop you can learn how
to play a few songs on the Kalimba, the 15-key African lamellophone. You also learn how the instrument is constructed and build and have the chance to listen to a performance of African kalimba repertoire. You also have the option to learn a kalimba dance.

The Kalimba and Mbira are some of the oldest traditional instruments in Africa. The Kalimba, also called Nyunga Nyunga, can be found across southern Africa and the Mbira dza Vadzimu originates in Zimbabwe. Both instruments are played with the thumbs and
index finger on the metal keys.
