Haitian Dance Class

Haitian Dance Class w/ Peniel Guerrier Adam Wamsley

Haiti, the second independent republic in the Americas, partakes of three cultural sources: African, American, and European. The dances and culture of Haiti have been extremely important in the development of American dance, thanks to the pioneering work of Katherine Dunham. Peniel Guerrier draws on his extensive knowledge of Haitian folkloric dance to create original combinations within the different traditional Haitian rhythms. His dances enhance the energy and flow of traditional forms with beautiful, vivid body shapes. 

Peniel is highly regarded as a teacher because of his thoroughness, his kindness, and the individual attention he gives to students of all levels. Owner, Laci Chisholm is also a student of Peniel's and has been dancing with him for the past 6 years. She is overjoyed that her favorite dance instructor will now be teaching at her studio. This is a class you don't want to miss!
