WELCOME BACK TO THE DANCE FLOOR!

We are currently offering in-person classes without any capacity restrictions.  

Everyone taking class must properly wear a mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status. The mask requirement is necessary to protect the health and safety of yourself and those around you.  In order for us to stay open and continue offering in-person classes, it’s imperative that we take every measure available to prevent the spread of COVID. Let’s do our part to stay safe, protect one another, and stay on the dance floor!

KanKouran’s weekly classes will continue to provide instruction in the authentic dance styles of select West African cultural groups, and include a warm-up and breakdown of dance steps, followed by the execution of the movements accompanied by the drums.

You have the option of attending class virtually or in person. Although not required, and regardless of the option you choose, we encourage participants to continue to register and pay for class online.

TO REGISTER AND PAY FOR CLASSES, PLEASE VISIT www.facebook.com/kankouran.

Thank you for your patience, support, and participation as we dance our way through these challenging times.
