African Dance – Authentic, traditional West African dances are taught, focusing on the dances of Guinea. Special attention is given to every detail from the fingers to the toes. Each class is accompanied by African percussion and instruments. At the end students are brought into the center of the dance floor where they apply these skills to movement.
African Percussion – Focusing training on the Djembe, the most popular of African drums from the Guinea region, this course teaches students how to play the three basic tones, the bass, the tone and the slap. Not only do students develop their sense of rhythm, but the discipline and structure of learning how to play the Djembe increases the student’s
physical strength and mental concentration.
Modern and Ballet techniques – In this class, the basic positions, exercises, vocabulary and technique are taught at the bare to ensure proper placement. Afterwards, emphasizing style and grace

Drama – Drama classes are offered on all levels and teach students how to “become the character” by working on improvisational skills and scene study.
