AFRO Beat

 

AFROBEAT is a class focused on various street dance styles that emerge from urban environments from across Africa such as coupe decale from Ivory Coast, azonto from Ghana and soukous from Congo. The music often possesses fast tempos and a blend of heavily percussive instruments, vocals, and sounds influenced by Yoruba music, house music and funk.

The distinguishing characteristics of afrobeat dance are undulating hip movements, powerful high-energy steps, and strong core-based movements
