Gibney is proud to partner with The Joyce Theater to offer a series of public Professional Classes. Take class and learn repertory with artists performing at The Joyce this season!

Class Description

Join Sankofa Danzafro’s artistic director, Rafael Palacios as he takes you through a journey of Afro-contemporary dance: a dance technique created in Senegal at the Mudra-Afrique School, championed by the celebrated Germaine Acogny. This technique uses an exploration of contemporary dance with traditional African dances as its base.
