Sabar


Sabar, the energetic, elegant traditional dance from Senegal, is a blast and the way to celebrate life. Workshops are proposed for both professionals/experienced sabar dancers and dance enthousiasts.

Every workshop is based around one of the rythms of Sabar and is ALWAYS accompagnied by the best Senegalese musicians.

Technique Acogny


"The Mother of African Contemporary Dance", Maman Germaine Acogny, has created this only codified African Modern dance technique. Technique Germaine Acogny is African and Western dance techniques merging together. It is a very specific, rhytmic and elegant dance.

 

uniYoon's Ise is one of the few artists in the world qualified, by Germaine Acogny herself, to teach this technique.

 

For more information about the Technique Germaine Acogny please go to Acogny
