African Dance Class

Maybe you’ve been inspired by a recent performance of local dance troupe African Soul International. Maybe you dig that tribal drumming. Or maybe you just need to get off your seat and use you feet. Regardless, you’re welcome to attend today’s traditional West African dance class, part of a series of 90-minute lessons that happen every Saturday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Calvary Presbyterian Church. “Kids will learn history, culture, and movement while improving their counting, focus, and self-confidence,” says troupe member Victoria Putnam. “And adults get a great workout to live drumming — all ages and experience levels welcome!” Leading the lessons are African Soul International dancers, who have performed for audiences at Playhouse Square, the Akron Civic Theatre, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and Kent State University, among other venues. Cost is $5.
