Papa Sy (West African Dance)

Papa Sy teaches Métisse-dance (hybrid-dance), a style of Contemporary West African dance which melds traditional Senegalese dance techniques with contemporary styles. Through original choreography set to music from Youssou N’Dour and other contemporary Senegalese musicians, the class will focus on ripple, contraction, weight, trajectory, pace, and breath. As a founding graduate of Germaine Acogny’s famed École des Sables school in Senegal and company member of Jant-Bi, Papa Sy has gone on to choreograph in collaboration with others such as Susanne Linke, renowned German dancer and choreographer of Tanztheater. This class welcomes both recreational and professional dancers.
