Afro-Brazilian dance is a rhythmic embodiment of African oral traditions and Brazilian flavor. It expresses ritual drama and homage to the gods and to nature. This workshop will provide exposure to the eclectic mix of Brazilian culture as a means of physical expression through vibrational movement.
The writing workshop is conducted using the BARS curriculum. BARS (the Bomani Armah wRiting System) shows students how a well-written essay resembles a well-written song, with the Main Idea being the thesis paragraph in an essay and a chorus/refrain/hook in a song, while the Supporting Details in an essay are just like the verses. The BARS curriculum is fun and innovative!
Popular Club Joe’s teacher, Clara Majors, doesn’t only create art visually but also creates art physically! Come out to learn various and intricate rhythms that you can create with your own body followed by a lesson in Afro movements.
