Pre-Prep African Dance & Drumming Workshop

“YEAH! YEAH! HEY! HEY! AFRICA! ME AND YOU ARE FRIENDS!”

Today Pre-prep attended an ‘African Drumming’ assembly and workshop thanks to the West-African dancing, singing and drumming duo of Gaspard (from the Ivory Coast) and Nii (from Ghana). The boys embraced dancing in barefoot and learning traditional West-African dance moves. As the beat of the drum echoed through the hall, the boys were able to let go of all inhibitions and really immerse themselves and celebrate West-African culture through dance and song.

When the drummers change their beats the dancers must also change their steps.
