Orixá Dance Class in NYC – August 2016
One of the most frequent inquiries that I receive is whether or not I know of any Candomblé dance classes. There don’t seem to be any regular classes in NYC, but here’s one to look out for in a couple of weeks.
Just remember that this is theatrical Orixá dance which focuses on rum movements, and not necessarily the xirê. If you ever get the chance to go to a xirê, do not break out these moves.
The class is being instructed by Cleonice Fonseca at Cumbé.
Here’s a taste of what you can expect from the class.
