Online West African Dance Lesson Video: West African Dance Vol 1: Kuku Lesson 1 - Kuku Introduction
Kuku is from the forest region of Guinea, a rhythm originally used to welcome initiates back into the village. This West African dance lesson originally appeared on the DVD "West African Dance Vol 1". It is our pleasure to make it available online for students of African dance and dancers who wish to cross-train in multiple disciplines.
If you are dancer who feels you could grow in the areas of groundedness, earthiness, arm movement, hand movement, head movement, full body coordinated movement, letting go completely, and solo movement and expression in general, this dance will send you along that path by leaps and bounds.
