Description

In Africa, dance is much more than physical movement—it is a direct way to celebrate life and create healing. African Healing Dance is a step-by-step course on the healing tradition and expressive movements that are unique to Africa's dance heritage.

From the movements of nature and everyday life, the tribal people of Africa developed specific dances to summon the energy of the world around them into their bodies for connection and healing. Through dancing, they became the bird and the wind, the fire and the serpent.

Join Wyoma, the lead dancer and director of the Damballa dance troupe, as she teaches you the African way of moving your entire body with passion and joy, including symbolic animal and elemental gestures, demonstrations of hip, torso, and shoulder articulations, and much more. Here's the instructional program you need to have a high-energy African dance class at home.

Can anyone learn these dances? "If you can talk, you can sing," they say in Zimbabwe, "and if you can walk, you can dance." So get ready to move—and be moved—with African Healing Dance.

Learn Six African Dances:

  • Sowu—The Dance of Life, from the Ewe of Ghana
  • Gbegbe—From the Ivory Coast, a call for vision and strength
  • Focodoba—A post-initiation basket dance from the Bambara of Guinea
  • Umoya—A South African dance to draw energy from heaven and earth
  • Nago—An Afro-Haitian warrior dance to claim your power and domain
  • Yonvalu—A voudoun invocation to Damballa, the serpent deity

Review for African Healing Dance Review by Sheila
Rating

Unfortunately to me this video was somewhat of a disappointment. It is not very suitable for beginners, contrary to what Wyoma says!
As a complete beginner myself, it is incredibly difficult to follow the moves Wyoma shows, partially because she proceeds very very quickly through them in the first 12 minutes of the video.
The rest of the video is already actual dances that are built on those basics and is quite useless unless you already manage with them well enough.
I felt I would have liked a bit more guidance and time with the single moves in order to be eventually able to let go and dance..

Thank you Wyoma and Sounds True. I am really enjoying the downloaded version of the African Healing Dance instructional. Wyoma is such a pleasure to watch, listen and dance with.
Another fine Sounds True production.

I thoroughly enjoyed the African Healing Dance. Used some of the moves I learned in the drumming circle in the park. Thank you so much Wyoma for making this. It is sorely needed.

For a number of years I've enjoyed working out to my videotape of Wyoma's African Dance. Now I ordered the DVD so I can continue dancing while I exercise. Her spirit and joy in dance is infectious and keeps me moving with a smile.

I enjoy this dvd so much! I was unable to do some of it as I was suffering from pinched nerves/bulging disk in my neck, but I could do some and it felt great.
After surgery (1 more week) and I will be able to do all of it and I am SURE it will help me recover!
