This week in dance we worked on Afrobeats and analyzed 2 dance videos to understand how performers can use dance as a way to communicate effective messages. We looked at a music video “This is America” and talked about the dance segments strategically placed by the artist. When we started to work on the dance routine itself the students personalities came out even more as there smiles filled the room. It is really good to see them helping one another especially going over choreograph material as the class starts. Next week we will be taking a look in Reggaeton music and how it is shaping the world we live in.
