As part of the Program in Dance’s spring 2021 co-curricular dance offerings, Omari Wiles leads a class on Afrobeat.
Curated by Princeton alum Lauren Auyeung ’19, this class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the course exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the course, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation.
These classes are open to all University students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
