Afro-Caribbean Dance History
Dance and Drum Circle
Tuesday, April 27, 11:00-12:00 on Zoom
Tara Murphy, African and Afro-Caribbean dance and drumming teacher and performer, will weave lecture and stories of West Africa with a creative dance and drum class. Tara began studying her heritage through African studies at Yale University and was awarded a Yale fellowship to study traditional dance and drumming at the University of Legon in Ghana, West Africa. Since returning to the US, she has studied with many African and Afro-Caribbean artists. Learn about the history and importance of dance and drumming in West Africa and the power of dance to release energy, lift spirits, and connect with others. With chair dancing and then drumming, we will get in touch with our innate rhythms, and get energy flowing throughout the body. This program will be recorded.
