What is gumboot dancing?

Gumboot dancing is a style of dance that originated in the mines of South Africa, as a means of communication between workers under oppressive working conditions.

Nowadays this style of dance is celebrated around the world and has evolved into forms such as stomping – commonly seen in the US.

Lucky  will deliver this workshop in Gumboot dancing, exploring rhythms and sounds as well as the relationship between drummer and dancer.

It will be a fun, energetic and dynamic workshop that will develop your skills not only in dance but in percussion too!

Gumboot dance, Lucky Lartey
