African dance workshop

African dance expert, Patrick Zizi, led our dance students through an international dance workshop which focused on traditional African style.

It was fantastic for the students to get first-hand experience from an industry expert. They not only learnt different phrases and combinations of movement, but also were able to understand the history and context surrounding the dance.

Eve Morson, dance student, said: “I really enjoyed the African dance workshop. I felt privileged to have worked with Patrick, as not many people get the opportunity to experience cultural dancing. I learnt a lot from the dance style including the history and the meaning of African dance. He was very inspirational.”

The dance students will use the knowledge they gained during the workshop to develop their own performance for their International Dance assessment.
