We are ultra excited about this workshop as it has been seven years since we have hosted the legendary Moustapha Bangoura. Moustapha is a former principal member of Les Ballets Africains, the prolific government sponsored dance company from the Republic of Guinea formed as a way to restore cultural pride after becoming free from French colonial rule. Moustapha spends his time traveling the US and the world including countries such as Japan and Italy to teach his workshops and choreography. He is currently based in Chicago, Illinois where he served as choreographer for Muntu Dance Theatre. This class will move faster than the beginner series but friendly to all levels and ages.
