Join us at Cumbe for an exclusive dance experience, introducing our first ever Reggada workshop from Morocco/Algeria! Also known as Allaoui, this style is a warrior dance originating from the Rif Mountains of North Eastern Morocco. This region is home to the Rifians, one group of the indigenous Amazigh (Berber) who are native to North Africa. It is all about shaking your shoulders! We will be learning fun rhythmic combinations of shoulder shakes and foot stomps, in “dialogue” with our percussionist. Get ready to mark your victory and territory!
