With the energy of live drummers and an instructor that could probably “go” for hours, it’s difficult not to push yourself to exercise. Everything from high jumps to hip shaking inhabits these classes, forcing students to bust a smile through, at times, agonizing routines. African Dance classes are offered at many cultural centers and gyms. Techniques range depending on the instructor’s regional focus (West Africa, East Africa, South Africa, etc.) for dance routines.
