Welcoming back Springtime at the dance studio~

The trees are budding, flowers are blooming and the breezes have that great earthy smell again. Happy Spring everyone!

Sweet smelling flowers in Nongo, Guinea

April will be another great month to share in rhythm and dancing. This month we’ll be dancing to the tune of Sorsornet, a dance from the Baga people of the Boké village of Guinea.

I’ll also be heading to NYC this weekend for the annual dance conference hosted by the Maimouna Keita School of African Dance. Check it out. Maybe you would like to attend as well!

Chances to study with master teachers in West African drumming and dance in Maine are scarce ~ don’t forget to sign up in class for the carpool from Portland to Kittery on April 14th for the incredible opportunity to take classes with Abdoulaye Sylla and Ismael Bangoura! We’re quite blessed to have these two Guinean guest artists returning to the Kittery Dance Hall.

You can find more info on their classes by scrolling down to my last post on March 23rd, or by visiting SeaCoast West African Dance & Drum. Wongai! (Let’s go!)
