Afro-Cuban Dance Workshop w/ Aaron

About The Afro-Cuban Dance Workshop Series
We are so excited to start off the year with the 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.
Aaron Damus – musician, former Masacote company dancer, and longtime MASATribe member – is happy to return for the third workshop of the series and it’s all about the dance!
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 to incorporate into your salsa dancing
-A greater connection and appreciation for the rhythms and movements
-More than dance, you will learn the stories and belief systems behind each movement
-BRING SOME FUN INTO YOUR SALSA!
