Through dance Africans tell stories that reflect upon important lifecycle stages:
  1. Birth
  2. Growth
  3. Maturity
  4. Transition and
  5. Transcendence

while celebrating earth, heaven and ancestry.  We are from and return to the earth, are blessed by and transition to the heavens and are known by and become ancestors.

These are just some of the dances we teach and where they might fit across the African lifecycle stages.
