KanKouran offers classes for children, teens and adults in the authentic dance and drumming styles of select West African cultural groups.  An aerobic activity, dance classes include a warm-up and breakdown of dance steps, followed by choreographed routines accompanied by the drums.

Drum classes teach polyrhythmic concepts of African drumming and choreographed orchestral techniques to accompany the dance movements.

KanKouran classes are currently being held at the Dance Exchange in Takoma Park, MD. For information about our weekly community classes, please check our calendar, contact KanKouran at akonte@aol.com, or call 202-518-1213.
