People are shy when it comes to African Dance. It's the fear of the unknown, but no worries dark-corner-dancers, you can try these simple dance moves in the broad daylight of your living room. As you will see and enjoy, there are two, young, wiggly assistants dancing right along. If they can, YOU CAN TOO.
I encourage you to have fun with this tutorial and let me know how confident you felt afterward. My teaching skills are exercised several times a week with my dance troupe, Atumpan African Dance so I really did attempt to talk you through as though I'm teaching in Norfolk, VA.
