African Dance with Nii (Wednesday 30th Sept): 

African dance and music traditions are almost inseparable. The two are intertwined to create narratives that are rooted in tradition. In traditional forms, movement, music and song help define the context to the dances, ranging from ceremonial, religious, ritual and entertainment. Nii Kwartey Owoo is a UK based Ghanaian musician, choreographer and African dance and music lecturer on the BA (HONS) Diverse Dance Styles at Irie Dance Theatre, accredited by University of Roehampton.

Participants of the session will learn about and explore:

  • African dance technique,
  • Poly rhythmic sensitivity and drum language
  • Counter rhythms in the way the body works
  • Dance history and stories



If you would like to sign up to any or all of these classes please book a ticket online or email us on admin@yorkshiredance.com. You can sign up to as many of the Master Classes as you like but remember places are limited so book on quickly.

We hope you will be able to join us for these Master Classes and enjoy celebrating a week of Dance On activity with us.
