    They need to be more academic and closer to the title

    Hi Yvonne,
    Thanks for the commentary I didn't attend this meet up event; I felt the title of the lecture was ambiguous and rather negative! Africa is a large continent made up of many countries each country having its own unique diverse cultural mix.
    African dance is a movement expression that consists of a spectrum of many different dance forms. Each form defined by its own individual technique, style and cultural reference. It would take a lifetime and beyond to fully understand or experience the complete spectrum of African dance forms. African dances are as varied and changing as the communities that create them. Although many types of African dance incorporate spirited, vigorous movement, there are also others that are more reserved or stylized dance can be recreation in the forms of masquerades, acrobatic dances, club dances. I for one have never associated African dance with porn!!

    Was good to see footage of different types of traditional African Dance from different regions of African, and seeing how the basis of African dance is present today. It was a bit disappointing that the talk title/question was not actually answered in full. Thread of presentation came away from theme e.g. Showing clips if tracks with reggae ton beat, which does link back to African roots but did not help to close the discussion topic loop. Overall enjoyable, great to see such a good turnout from various groups. Apologies I did not seek out Black Professionals members, hope you all enjoyed.

    I find Blackhistorywalks lectures very basic... but they fulfil a need I suppose...

      Not only that, but please decide if you are going to have a community meeting or a lecture… lol

      I appreciate our tradition of a 'call & response' interaction but commentators in the audience have a tendancy to pull the dialogue in all sorts of directions which digresses from the subject matter. It turns into a hodge lodge of personal anecdotes and soapbox ranting. lol

    Hmmm this is rather an ambiguous title for a lecture and a real generliaztion! Dance is a prime means of artistic expression, with dance companies expanding and exploring new territory. Example Elvis Presley gyrating his hips on stage was considered pornographic in its day, now he imitated black music, however we wouldn't take credit for his dad dancing!!! lol

    May I inquire whether the lecture being given is by a African Dance Historian, or a dance enthusiast before deciding on whether to attend?

      I have no idea who is delivering it as there is no information. I agree. It's purposefully ambiguous. We've been burned before SDB!
