    Herve Makaya Kayos     Teach  Congolese traditional dance in various places in 
    Bay Area, U.S.A, France, Germany, Africa, etc...

    This dance style is known for its smooth, grounded and soulful movement as depicted by its pelvic rotation, shoulder and torso rotation. Live music is typically played on the Ngoma, a Congolese drum which is cylindrical and elongated in height. The class will be composed of a minimum of two different rhythms so that the students get to experience some variety within this dance style. This class will teach you the technique of traditional and contemporary Congolese while your body and soul enjoys the rhythms, dance, and song, as they are intertwined. Women bring a piece of African fabric or other (lappa) to wrap around your waist if you have it (2-yards +/-). Otherwise, dance pants, yoga pants, tanks, other comfortable clothing are fine. Congolese is done barefoot.
