African Dance Workshops

African Dance Workshops


Come experience first-hand lessons in West African dance on Thursday in the Alfred Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gymnasium’s dance studio.


Daidie Bathily, who is from the Ivory Coast and is the artistic director and choreographer of Afriky Lolo, will be conducting a dance workshop from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in room 424. This event is open to students, faculty, staff and the Tallahassee community.


Bathily has more than 30 years of professional dance experience throughout Africa, Europe and the U.S. Bathily is in Tallahassee as part of a series of West African Dance performance events sponsored by FSU’s Big Ideas Initiative, organized by Joseph Hellweg, the assistant professor of religion at FSU.

This workshop is free, but space is limited, so come out early or you’ll miss out!

This event is hosted by both FAMU and FSU. For more information, call Dr. Gaynell Sherrod at 850-561-2737.
