Can’t deny that Influence!

Now days there’s a lot of fusion and exploration in multiple dance forms, Caribbean, Modern, Hip Hop, Jazz, House….just to name a few is ALL Influenced by traditional African dance in some way, including the quickly growing Afro Beat. Magically or on purpose dance has evolved and continues to grow, fusing many different styles/techniques together.  I think it’s all great how we are all connecting in some way, even if it’s just a simple hip thrust, isolation, or even how we huddle in a circle to encourage and send positive energy to one another. We can see the cultural, social, and movement based similarities.
