AFRICAN DANCING INCURSION

Rhythm Culture African dance school incursions are for High School students and Primary School students that would like to further their multicultural dance studies and/or engage in a high energy activity that incorporates dance, rhythms, song and loads of fun .

Primary school students can also enjoy the Drum Sing Dance Program. Students will love the joy of West African drum and dance. Fun upbeat choreography that will inspire students creativity, release study pressure and create a sense of community within the cohort.

secondary school students

High school incursions focus on delivering a dance that the students can then combine into their contemporary pieces for assessment. This can either be a one off  introduction to West African dance or it can be delivered in a program with a series of sessions. Students can gain an understanding in African dance and its choreographic and performance based elements.

West African dance differs dramatically with many dance styles taught in Australia, broadening students knowledge in cultural dance styles. Students can use this knowledge in their final years of dance study curriculum to create an original dance piece combined with their contemporary dance elements.

key elements in west african dance

Stamina, endurance and focus are just a few of the key elements needed for West African dance.

Students will learn about dance in Africa. Traditional versus modern. Key elements and signature moves in select rhythms and the cultural significance for each rhythm.

The team are so easy to work with and reliable and professional. Thanks Rhythm Culture, we will be booking you again in the future”

 Carly Cook, Music Teacher, Mountain Creek State High School.

Peregian Beach Community Kindergarten

“Nathaniel has an easy and natural rapport with Kindy children. His range of experiences are perfect for this age group. Aside from experiencing a glimpse of African culture and being immersed in his wonderful music, the children could not help but be inspired by Nathaniel’s passion for what he does. I highly recommend Rhythm Culture for any Kindergarten program.”

Carmel Desjardins, Director, Peregian Beach Community Kindergarten

 

Marlborough State School

“Nathaniel’s enthusiasm and passion for his art was contagious and inspirational. The children had a wonderful time and they were kept moving and engaged for the entire 2 days. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone wishing to immerse children in a rich cultural experience. Thank you Nathaniel we had a blast!”

– Leanne Jones, Acting Principal, Marlborough State School

– Kathryn Whiting, Functions and Productions Manager IRONMAN Asia-Pacific

John Paul College

“Kids absolutely loved you guys. They kept dancing and drumming around after you guys left. Some of them still remember the dance movement and do it with ‘A-fri-ca!’. It was a great team building activity. I was also surprised with my international boarders who normally do not get involved, but they enjoyed it so much as well. I will have a chat with my boss and will organise a session again either next term or early next year. Thank you for coming and giving us a great time” – Eunie, John Paul College

St Michaels College

“The workshop was absolutely fantastic! It was fun and challenging and pitched at a perfect level for our year 9s.

Palmwoods Kindergarten

It was great to have the inclusion of the co-operative body percussion included in the workshop which encourages children to work together and consolidates the teaching we have done with keeping beat and making patterns with sound.” – Palmwoods Kindergarten, Roseann.

Chislom Catholic College

“Yes, your workshops were wonderful! The kids learnt so much and my colleague and I are calling it the best incursion yet. We will certainly book again next year when we know numbers! The two workshops were really useful and the students also got a bunch of choreography they can use in their assessment.” – Chisolm Catholic College, Teagan Griffey

West End State School OSHC

 “Performance was great! We were so lucky that the Rythm Culture staff were able to control large groups of children with not much assistance from service staff. We were able to interact alongside the children which was a change. The children were into the performance from start to finish and were talking about it all afternoon. This was a company we would we using again for sure! Thankyou Rhythm Culture!” – West End State School OSHC, Katerina Charalambous
