About the studies:

The study is carried out in a common language of dancers and drummers, and presents the contents of African ballet in the academic method. The exercises include an African ballet technique based on a deep understanding of the rhythmic polyrhythmic structure. In this way, the students improve their personal and unique application ability, based on a comprehensive understanding of the origins of the rhythm and its characteristics.

The course is suitable for a wide range of volunteers in the field of performing arts, including dancers, drummers, movement and music therapists, choreographers, teachers, actors and acting students. The goal is to acquire basic knowledge of the professional language, recognition of the different rhythms, and the ability to move and create with originality and style.

Completion of the course gives the students advanced dancer abilities, and gives inspiration and a new spirit for creation and creativity in the field. Studying also provides health benefits such as improving physical fitness, the ability to communicate with the body and spirit, and reducing stress and anxiety levels.
