Priyanka sends along this event announcement for the Carlos Museum…

AFRICAN DANCE FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

MONDAYS, NOVEMBER 7 – DECEMBER 12

5-6:30 PM, RECEPTION HALL

For six Monday afternoons, the Carlos Museum invites you to dance to the rhythms of live African drums with Giwayen Mata. Move to the direction of Omelika Kuumba and members of this three-time winner of Creative Loafing’s Choice Award for Top Traditional/World Music and Dance group. Giwayen Mata will warm you up, work you out and cool you down with movements, rhythms, and songs as well as explain the cultural contexts for each dance. You are guaranteed to experience your muscles thoroughly and leave each session feeling revived and rejuvenated.

Fee: $60 for Museum members, $80 for non-members. To register, contact Elizabeth Hornor at 404-727-6118 or [email protected]

This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition Divine Intervention: African Art and Ritual, on view at the Carlos through December 4.
