DANCE CLASSES - AFRO-CARIBBEAN CLASSES

What is Afro-Caribbean?

 

Afro-Caribbean is a rich genre, featuring both traditional and contemporary styles of a combination of dance genres - Caribbean, Latin and African derived dances from the Caribbean.

 

Afro-Caribbean dance classes offer students the opportunity to sample a range of dances, at the centre of which is self-awareness and self expression - a perfect genre for extroverted children, or conversely, for children who may be shy and self-conscious and need to build their self confidence.
