_

Dance forms are the basis of African arts and culture, and for this reason, Osun Arts use dance to facilitate learning methods for children, teaching them a variety of songs and dances in the original languages and styles.

Here, the participatory nature of our work is achieved when pupils do a range of dance movement understanding the communication between them and the drummer African rhythms and dance movements is part of what we do in schools. Everyone in the group during workshops takes part and the session involves participants wearing African clothes especially when it is done towards a final performance.

The participants learn original dance techniques from Africa, accompanied by live drumming with a combined contemporary approach.
