LET’S CELEBRATE πŸ”₯ FELAπŸ’ƒKUTIπŸ”₯THE KING OF AFRO BEAT
.
AFROBEAT was born of Activism & Social Justice. In this day and age we still need such activism in our various ART forms! 🀝
Teaching this AFROBEAT class was so dear to me! It was important for me to educate my students on the difference between Afrobeat & Afrobeat’s’ in music and in dance. Discussing some history and views from my own perspective, with what I’ve learned over the years. Being that Afrobeat birthed Afrobeat’s’ it was important for me to create an atmosphere bringing everyone closer to that era! ( class was for 3 hours! We had an hour long lecture / then we danced) Sharing a part of my culture and honoring the Late great Fela Anikulapo Kuti ( Father / founder) of Afrobeat in my class was a dream come true. πŸ€— This Choreography was made to His son’s music Femi Anikulapo Kuti.
Thank you NYC for being open and accepting! πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ thank you to everyone that made the class a success! πŸ’ͺ🏽
Feel free to share how AFROBEAT has inspired you.
