About The Afro-Cuban Dance Workshop Series
We are so excited to launch Masacote’s Afro-Cuban Dance Workshop Series. Afro-Cuban dance specialists will host different workshops throughout the year where you will have the opportunity to do more than just learn salsa. You will explore the various forms of the Afro-Cuban dance tradition through different movements representing the Orishas (deities from the African traditions brought to Cuba). Making this connection will allow you to embrace salsa through a cultural context in community with other salsa dancers.
Our first artist to host an Afro-Cuban Dance Workshop is former Masacote company dance and longtime MASATribe member, Aaron Damus!
So, why should you take this workshop?
A better understanding of the origins of Cuban dance
Conditioning, flexibility, body isolation, and technique
Find and develop your own flavor and styling, which you can then incorporate into your salsa dancing
A greater connection and appreciation for the rhythms and movements
You will learn more than just dance, you will learn the stories and belief systems behind each movement
BRING SOME FUN INTO YOUR SALSA!
