The Denison University Department of Dance is offering a class in Contemporary/African Fusional Dance. This 90 minute movement class, taught by Celia Weiss Bambara, a dance artist and scholar of African dance forms, will take place between 4:30 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 28, in the Doane Dance Upper Studio (231 W. College Street).
Bambara, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of African American Studies at the University of Illinois-Chicago, will focus on fusions or mixes of modern/contemporary dance and African-based dance. The class will include a contemporary and modern warm-up that will challenge students to work on leg extensions, the core and hip flexibility, as well as an African based section, which will focus on isolations drawn from a variety of movement practices. Also included will be across-the-floor combinations, jumps, improvisation and choreography.
All levels of experience welcome, and no experience is needed. This class is free and open to the public.
