Adila Omotosho’s masterclass delves into the transcultural diversity of Afro urban dances, using elements from Naija Street Style, South African Gqom, and Senegalese Saba. The approach will be both technical and creative. The masterclass explores movement in its rawness, the fundamental aspects of Afro, the story of its people, movement awareness, the possibilities and strength of dancing bodies. The components of this class are rich in electronic and local drum sounds, chants, and a touch of African attire.
