Tamboula Ethnic Dance Company Workshop
Tamboula Ethnic Dance Company, in partnership with the Links Hall, is offering a series of Afro-Haitian dance workshops every first Monday of the month starting March 1st until June 7, 2010. Afro-Haitian dance has greatly influenced the modern dance world, largely through the research and exposure of Katherine Dunham. Tamboula expresses an African influenced technique integrated into Haitian traditional folk dances and rhythms. Join us today and learn about the Yoruba, Nago, Ibo, Congo, and the Dahomey people. Come learn how to sustain energy and increase strength, grace, suppleness and flexibility. Come discover something about yourself by learning a different culture through the art of dance.
Come Dance with us!
Daniel Dsir, a native of Haiti, is an accomplished and inspired dancer and choreographer. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, and his research interests include culture and education. His journey through dance started in 1986 on the island of Haiti where he mastered Haitian traditional folk dances and learned to incorporate this style with contemporary and modern styles. His works are an unpredictable fusion of ethnic, modern, and contemporary disciplines blended with traditional Haitian folk dances and rhythms that are accentuated by religious symbolism. Mr. Dsirâs desire is to create a body language that outpours an expression of the sentiments of human life in this confusing world.
