AAST 370 - Djapo Dance @ Oberlin

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Djapo is a Wolof word meaning together. This course is designed to bring individuals together to preserve traditional West African Dance and other African Diasporic forms by acknowledging the spirituality, philosophy, and diversity of African Culture and its global presence. Djapo Dance will function as a semi-professional company that will serve the Oberlin campus and greater Lorain County and the surrounding community through on and off campus performance venues. Djapo Dance is an off-spring to Dance Diaspora, which was formed to provide the Africana student community with the opportunity to develop their art and cultural performance skills using an interdisciplinary model.
Prerequisites & Notes: DANC/AAST 190 or 191. Faculty Directed Student, Community Performance Project - Costume Fee of $50 . Registration is open to the community
