African Dance classes with Domani Keïta (with live percussion)
Learn how to dance traditional African dances in a 1h lesson (Mondays) or 1,5h lesson (Tuesdays) with Guinean dance teacher Domani Keïta - with live percussion (djembé & bass drums).
In a relaxed and friendly atmosphere I teach and practice with my students the various dance steps of many traditional dances of the Mandinga region (Jankadi, Makuru, Dununba, Soli, Mandiani, Djolé, Maane etc.).
I explain the context of each dance, teach their simple and more developed steps together with little traditional songs and help the dancers get aquainted with the sounds and patterns of the accompanying instruments (djembés and bass drums).
At the end of the year (June), we usually organise a party where the group can show what they learned to the public (friends and family). This aims to re-create the atmosphère of the famous West-African "Ballets" where I danced before I moved to Europe and which were very popular until the end of the 1990s.
* Our location is suitable for up to 20 dancers. Inscriptions (for the full or half season) are registered first come first served. Contact me !
