About the event

Afrobeats dance is a diverse and fascinating style originating predominantly form Sub-Saharan Africa. It is an evolution from traditional African dance styles following the creation of Afrobeats music. This doesn’t mean that previous styles have been discarded but have been built on over the years by Afrobeats dance enthusiasts and musicians.

With that being said, Afrobeats music plays a major role in the creation and proliferation of Afrobeats dance. In fact, the dance was developed as a response to the genre’s incredibly energetic and upbeat rhythm. Artists across africa  have not only created the sound that goes along with this exciting dance style, but have created memorable dance trends as well.

If you have seen an Afrobeats dance routine you’ll know that it’s fast paced, fun and easy on the eyes! It basically gives anyone I know watching it an Eyegasim! (if that’s even a word). This dance style has been around for many years however with the rise in the number of African diaspora, popularity of Afrobeats music and a mixture of cultures, Afrobeats dance has risen in popularity around the world.

You do not need any dance experience to join our dance workshop.
