Afro-Cuban Workshop with Ariel Rios
June 25 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm£35
This is a 3 hours workshop with focus on Afro-Cuban dances & techniques, body movement & coordination, and learning about the different Orishas.
Join us to learn about the beauty of Afro-Cuban Dances. Most of them are from the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria; these dances originated from Yoruba West African ethnic groups that mainly inhabit parts of Nigeria, Benin and Togo, traditions imported by enslaved Africans into Cuba. The dances represent the different Gods of the “Panteon Yoruba”. These Dances involve many pelvic and torso movements.
Your teacher for the day: El maestro Ariel Rios, Cuban dancer, teacher, performer & choreographer, with more than 25 years of experience.
