Lacina Coulibaly (Burkina Faso) Contemporary African Dance Workshop
Thursday, May 18, 8:15-9:30PM, $11
at the DANCE COMPLEX, 536 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA, Central Square

Modern classes with Lacina Coulibaly, choreographer and dancer hailing from Burkina Faso, West Africa, focus on his original blend of traditions and genres. Lacina has been working for years to develop his own unique style that exists at the intersection between the traditional styles of his home country, the expressions that emerge from the exploration of the self, and the techniques of European modern dance.

Students of both Modern and traditional African dance genres will find correlations, challenges and revelations in Lacina's technique and

Testimonial from a series participant - "As a dancer trained in both classical and modern styles, and now with years of experience in African dance, I find Lacina's classes especially valuable to the modern and contemporary classical dancer. The rhythmic detail, awareness and fully inhabited quality that he brings into his movement (clearly from the traditional dance of his native country), is both challenging and powerful. The depth that this adds to any expression of modern dance is profound."
