7pm – 8.30pm: AFRO HOUSE
Afro House is an energetic dance style that originated in Africa. The style derives from Kuduro, an Angolan dance style that evolved during a period of war, making it quite a ‘hard’ dance style. Besides elements of Kuduro, Afro House also has a softer, more cheerful side, inspired by – among other styles – by Pantsula, a dance style developed in South Africa and discovered by Angolan youth on their travels. They were the ones who developed the mixed dance style into the form we now know as Afro House.
8.30pm – 10pm: HIP HOP
Hip Hop Dance is a style of dance with deeply rooted historical, social, cultural contexts that trace back to the African and Afro-Caribbean diaspora. Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture.
