Dive into the culture of West Africa and take a spiritual, musical journey. These dances are full of joy and rhythm, and are sure to energize your week! Our West African class is taught by Masani St. Rose-Toth, a captivating and authentic instructor with infectious enthusiasm. Masani is a native Calgarian who started dancing at the tender age of 3, specializing in West African and Caribbean dance. Upon the introduction to dance, Masani found passion for the West African culture and style. It was through training under Michèle Moss-Johnston at Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, she was able to build her foundation. Still working very closely with Michèle Moss-Johnston and various other artists from Guinea, West Africa, she finds every opportunity to take master classes from artists from various regions of Africa including, Congo, Uganda, Ghana, Mali, Guinea and Zimbabwe. Throughout the years, Masani has worked with various studios and professional groups across Canada. It is her mission to keep the art and culture alive from soul to sole!
