What we're about

Calling anyone interested in the African dance form of Mapouka or it's descendants in the forms of New Orleans Bounce and twerking throughout the diaspora. All skill levels are welcome. I started this group because I wanted to connect with other enthusiasts and fans throughout the Emerald City. This is not about promoting a brand but about promoting African dance forms throughout the diaspora while respecting the culture. Again, not meant to make money off of our ancestors for individual brands or appropriate culture by selling "dance fitness" classes but meant to build community and appreciation and pass down these traditions. Open to all, fans and practitioners and those who want to learn.
Ase!
