The Movement of Revolution
Believe it or not, this city is a cornucopia of fascinating, global movement styles. The most recent offering to our multifaceted scene are Ghanaian Dance classes taught by master drummer and dancer, Mensah Sokpor. Mensah is a 20-year veteran of his craft, having grown up in one of the epicenters for Ghanaian dance, Accra, Ghana. His relatives are of the very people that cultivated this rich and purposeful expression of love, honor and joy, naturally passing that onto him. The African dance instructors in Albuquerque all seem to have superior credentials and Mensah joins those ranks as having performed for the esteemed Olympic games in Atlanta in '96. Thankfully, Maple Street Dance Space is host to this series in their back door studio on Thursdays throughout July including this week, July 5 from 5:30 to 7pm. For $15 per class, experience the Afro-centric, percussive-driven, high-energy passion of this deeply gratifying dance style.
