Free to the first 20 Scarab Club members who sign up! Drop in or take the full series.
Learn the basics of Afro-Cuban dance with master teacher & choreographer Lisa McCall of Iyawo Folkloric Dance Theater. Classes are based in movements and rhythms of the African Caribbean Diaspora and to celebrate the powerful trio of live musicians, song and dance. Ms. McCall's training is in the Katherine Dunham technique incorporated with principles from folkloric Afro-Cuban, Caribbean and Haitian dance. The experience is designed to be beneficial for all experience levels and is a wonderful tool for community building and spiritual healing through the benefits of dance.
Please bring water and a long skirt to practice in. More information (and traditional skirts available for purchase) here.
