House of Gaia Offers International Dance Classes
Sep 01, 2015 10:30AM
The House of Gaia Community Learning Center, in Naples, will offer new Ra-African dance classes this month at 6 p.m. Wednesdays, beginning September 8.
The center will also host a Ra-African Dance and Drum workshop from 3 to 6 p.m., October 18, followed by a post-event potluck party with donations accepted to support the center and its scholarship program for fall classes. House of Gaia Director Lulu Carter, the queen mother of Torgome Village, in Ghana, will lead this energetic class. Students will learn the Ra-African style, a fusion of African and Brazilian dance moves.
While committed to the local Southwest Florida community for years, Carter has been invited for the second time to represent Brazil, her native country, in a Semester at Sea program, sailing from Senegal to Bahia this November.
Costs: $12 per class; $35 workshop. Location: 1660 Trade Center Way, Ste. 1 and 3. For more information, call 239-272-6152 or visit HouseOfGaia.org.
