A vast majority of the dances done in Africa are purely for joy and celebration; any reason to get together and dance every day is a good reason.
Village Life is a student organized drum and dance gathering open to the extended community, since 1997. Students who are interested in organizing and planning weekly or special events determine the particular focus and guest artists. In the past Village Life has inclued traditional West African, African Inspired dance and drumming, open drum circles, and Honoring our Ancestors at Halloween.
Village Life often sponsors special guests, such as Kofi Anang (Ghana), The African Show boys, Youssouf Koumbassa (Guinea), Amara Mansure(Guinea), Laura Doll (Flagstaff), Liz Faller (Prescott), and Three Trees (Sedona).
Village Life is open to any event that integrates movement, music, and community—often inspired from world cultures—and enhancing our experience of unity, joy, and gratitude. Students interested in organizing Village Life can contact Liz Faller.
