In Africa, dance is as much a part of life as eating, drinking and working.
Dance in Africa expresses similar feelings, not only of worship but also of social communication: supplication, passionate relational feelings and even transitional life stages, as persons move from one stage of maturity to another. It also communicates virtues, values and even teachings about social manners that are used to help individuals mature and celebrate.
There are general reasons why dance is so important. It is an experience that moves Africans beyond the material to the intangible, simply a way they can express themselves when words are deficient. Africans can feel the delight of a newly discovered love, assurance in the midst of incredible distress or difficulty, the energetic fire of childhood, and the serenity of milder and gentler years.
It is always exciting to watch African dance movements and styles.
We particularly love this routine by Y Saint…Enjoy!
