Inhye Kim's curator insight, March 9, 1:59 AM

The African dance is known as the oldest form of choreography in the world. The dancers in Africa learn the movements from early ages, and their dance is very famous in their country. Many dancers use drumming in their dances. There are some instruments played in this dance creating variety of rhythms for the dancers to express the purpose of their dance moves. The Africans also dance in the wedding ceremonies, funerals, and cultural events. The performers use many parts of their bodies to dance. They use kicks; rapid swings of arms, and jumps to perform their dance. Dancers in Africa spread their cultures and their own thoughts by dancing with all they can. They include powerful movements to show the audience of what they are feeling or experiencing.

             This article helped me to understand how dance was one of African’s unique entertainments to show their characteristics to the people around the world. The dance didn’t seem like the modern hip-hops or jazz type, but it sounded very traditional and meaningful. I felt like African was one of the greatest place where I could learn more about their cultural arts.

             This article led me more into African’s culture and their traditions. I thought it was very interesting of the ways the dancers use their bodies to express their feeling to the rhythm of the music. I felt like their dance would have a very deep meaning or a thoughtful message for those who are watching. This article reminded me of the film “War Dance” that I’ve watched in my class. I thought of the Swahili children dancing while I read this article.

delaneygrimes-sarahmcfadyen's curator insight, April 10, 11:21 AM

African dancing has traditionally played an essential role in the culture of the tribes. It represents the dancers inner feelings and emotions. These tribe members were taught very young how to move in such a way. It is a tradition to dance in honor of the transition from man hood or becoming a women. Dancing is used in many rituals or gatherings and each is a representation of the way of life.
