This workshop has been cancelled due to instructor illness. We plan to reschedule for a future date.
In this upbeat and aerobic class, you will learn a traditional Congolese dance called ndombolo. Through the class, you will also learn about Congolese culture. We will have fun dancing to live drums. All levels are welcome and no experience is necessary!
About the instructor: Choisie Nyemba started dancing at age 10 at Ballet du Congo where she studied traditional Congolese dance. There she became an assistant teacher, helping to teach classes and work with new students. Since coming to the United States in 2017, she has established a Congolese dance and drum group at Portland High School called Ballet Africa Mbanda. She is excited to share her passion for dance and aspires to open her own dance studio. You can currently find her volunteering to teach classes at the Boys and Girls Club!
