African Movement with Omari Mizrahi
Since I have been in New York, Omari Mizrahi's class has become a place of growth, challenge and spiritual healing from taking his Vogue Femme, Afrobeats and West African Classes weekly. His vocabulary in dance is stemmed from his African background in Senegalese and Mali. In every session, Omari breaks down the movements, history, and musicality that the style of dance comes from to help students become the best version of themselves.
In our conversation, we talked about the importance of African dance influence and breaking students from relying on hitting the "crash" to help train their ears in hearing the music. You can also find out details about his upcoming events and classes!
