[Wadabo_updates] lacina coulibaly - contemporary african dance from burkina faso

hello everyone -
so great news! Lacina Coulibaly is back in town! he'll be working at
yale until december, and he would love to come up to boston to teach
some workshops. you all may remember him from his stay here in spring of

he is a wonderful high energy teacher, who teaches contemporary dance
with a strong african flavor. think jean appolon, think seydou
coulibaly. now think again.

as some of you may know, i'm getting married in early october, so am
waay crunched for time to organize workshops. if anyone is interested in
organizing some workshops for lacina in september or october (or nov/dec
for that matter), please get in touch via erichludwig (at) and
i'll put you in touch with lacina and you can organize some workshops
around the area. what i typically did was organize in exchange for a
free class, and donate the flyers, so this is very much a volunteer
assignment should you choose to take it on.

if you need a visual reminder - there is a picture of lacina (aka lasso)
on this page - on the right
towards the bottom.

great experience to do this, and very good for the community to have
such a great teacher around for a few months.
