African dance is so fun and cool. It’s no wonder there are African dance studios and lessons all over the world. The traditional dances and music from Africa found their way into much of the culture in North America, South America and the Carribean when slaves and immigrants came from Africa to the new world.

With the great drum beats and rhythms, many traditional African dances have continued or have morphed with other dance influences to form completely different styles of dance. From salsa to hip hop, you can find African dance influences everywhere.

Check out the performance by these students. Besides being a lot of fun, dance is also a great workout. There is a style or type of dance form for everybody - just experiment with different styles until you find the one you like best.
