    African Dance with Passion is a vibrant introduction to African dances from across the continent. The book breaks down the various dance techniques, educates students about the cultures that created the dances, and explains the meanings behind them.

    Students will learn the detailed choreography of ten different dances and become familiar with the elements, such as the use of a live drummer, that make African dance unique. The book helps students prepare mind and body for the dancing and introduces foundational techniques. It provides a template for dances that can be taught in classes and teaches readers the history of the various dance forms.

    African Dance with Passion makes the case for this spirited, energetic genre as both a form of art and a form of exercise that can bring health benefits and great joy to the participant. It is intended to accompany the curriculum of courses in beginning African dance. It can also be used as a supplemental reader for classes on African history or cultural studies.

    Kukuwa Kyereboah-Nuamah was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa. She has been dancing since the age of three and is now an adjunct faculty member at the George Mason University School of Dance. Professor Kyereboah-Nuamah is also a certified health fitness consultant who seeks to educate the dance and fitness worlds about the health benefits of dance. In addition, she is the founder of the Gye Nyame African Cultural Dance Company and Kukuwa, LLC and has garnered international acclaim as a dancer and choreographer.
