Imagine stepping into the Black Box theater and forgetting that you are in Manhattan. Do you hear the chanting, the beats drumming?
During community hour, student’s gathered to learn West African dance moves from Mouminatou Camara.
Camara is an instructor from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). She taught students the beginning basics of West Congo.
“We wanted student’s to learn more about the culture,” said Segun Olaniyi.
Olaniyi is the African Student’s Association President. The event was open to everyone with no dance experience required.
Are you sad you missed it? Another class will be held in the Black Box theater on Thursday September 27th.
