Based on the spoken language, African dance is a source of communication through which it is possible to demonstrate emotion, beliefs, everyday life activities and other reactions through movement. Love, sorrow, courage, fear and all known human emotions can be expressed through rhythmic movements; African dance is the medium through which such expression can be made.
African dance is primal and low to the ground, connecting the dancer with the earth. African dance forms are strong and vital with a feeling of dynamic thrust and resistance. Traditionally, African dance involves a group of people dancing a piece of choreography together, and it is by nature participatory: the role of the performer and audience is interchangeable since both are usually member of the same community.
