The Austin Caribbean Cultural Exchange invites all children ages 6-14 to immerse themselves in Caribbean cultures through dance. In this five-part series, children will learn Folkloric Dance and Kompa from Haiti, Soca and Chutney from Trinidad and Tobago, Dancehall from Jamaica, and Salsa Choke (choque) from Colombia.
Dancers will have the option to showcase the moves they learn at the first annual Caribbean American Heritage Month Festival, which will take place on June 27th from 12-4pm at the African-American Cultural and Heritage Facility (the same location as the class).
This class is free and open to the public. So come learn how to wine, nuh linga and choque!
