In this course, advanced dance students will learn complex dances from a number of different ethnic cultures from Ghana and West Africa. The historical, social, cultural and religious contents of each dance will be presented. Focus will be given to mastery of the texture effort, shape and dynamics within the choreography. This is a physically rigorous and challenging course for those who have completed DANC360 (West African Dance II) or have equivalent experience.
