This meetup is a traditional West African Dance class with live drumming. The class is entitled "Cardio & Culture" because not only are you moving and dancing, but you are learning the meanings of the dances and movements to provide you with a dash of culture.

The class is a mixture of strengthening exercises and traditional West African movement. Although the class is centered around dance, you do not need extensive dance experience. Students who have never danced a day in their life will be fine in class. All levels and ages of students are welcome to participate.

Students should wear comfortable clothes in which it is easy to move but are definitely encouraged to wear African dance attire including lapas for women and socatos for men. A lapa is a large piece of material wrapped around the waist and socatos are droop seated pants.

Come on out to Cardio & Culture and have a great time in this high energy celebration of African culture.
