Find the rhythm inside you! Afromix combines different (African) styles of dance and music like African percussion, afrobeat and other up-tempo music styles. The basis is African dance: great, earthbound, intensive and exhilarating movements. The secret is to let everything go and at the same time to master the independent movement of the upper and lower part of the body. Then you can add your own twist to it: let go, surrender to the dance and become one with the music. It is energetic and the most important thing is to enjoy it!
You start with a good warm up, including body exercises and stretching to get ready for the AfroMix movements. Those are grounded, big and explosive and will be adapted to the space you have at home in such a way that you can still get the right vibes and energy. You will work as a group, dancing together and experience the group dynamics, and you will get video instructions to practice for yourself. Everyone will get individual feedback from the teacher.
Connection is important; to get to know each other and feel safe in the group to express yourself. Together, you work on a choreography, playing with the online possibilities to create something nice, that shows the energy that you feel while dancing. You record yourself, showing your favourite part of the choreography, which we will then put together for the final presentation of the week, including African/colorful outfits as a finishing touch!
