Please mark your calendar for an uplifting dance workshop with Oumou Faye with live drumming from our very own Ibou Ngom and the remarkable Mbor Faye at Studio Dance Fit on March 1st. This dance workshop is good for ages 10 and up, $20 for adults $15 for youth. Drummers are welcome to bring their Djembe and participate in a drumming workshop alongside the dance class.

Oumou Faye is from Dakar, Senegal where she started dancing before she could walk. She is known for her grace and joy in movement. She is a patient and clear teacher. She now lives in Santa Cruz with her husband Mbor Faye (who drums for her classes) and her two children, Coumba and Seyne. They hold weekly popular classes there and also share their art beyond leading dance classes throughout the greater Bay Area. Check out this video clip for a glimpse at one of her classes.
