Arts & Education

A Taste of Africa

Feel the rhythm of the drums, explore the raw energy of the dance and be captivated by culture in this well rounded, educational incursion program.

A Taste of Africa celebrates the power of diversity in our ever-changing multicultural society. It brings school communities together, challenges their ideas of the African culture and allows them to connect with the artists in a meaningful way.

African Drumming Workshop

Our drumming workshops introduce the basic skills and techniques of djembe drumming and move from learning simple rhythms to creating polyrhythmic and more complex patterns.

Our experienced African performers make the workshops fun, educational, supportive and inclusive, ensuring everyone is working together to bring the music to life.

These workshops are a fantastic way to bring your community together and are known for improving mental and physical well-being.

Whether you have danced before or have 2 left feet you can be sure that Asanti Dance Theatre will have you moving and grooving in no time!

Join our experienced African facilitators as they guide you through a variety of dance movements and styles that draw on the traditional dance moves of West Africa.

Accompanied by live music, these workshops will leave you inspired, invigorated and with some new dance moves to try on the dance floor.

Styles offered include traditional African dance, Afro-contemporary, Afro–funk (hip hop), Afro-Aerobics and Gumboot dancing.
