ABOUT US

We are a group of ladies who love to dance! (Men are also welcome :-))

 

African Dancercise is essentially a fitness class, that uses West African Dance and rhythms.

Classes are all run by me, Jean Quaife. I have had a passion for all things West African for many years and as well as being a keen and fairly accomplished drummer, I have been teaching West African dancing for nearly 7 years.

I have studied through numerous workshops in the UK run by professional West African dancers and I have made 2 study trips to Senegal to study with some of the top dancers from Guinea.

We have adults of different ages and mobility in the group, and the beauty is that we can all dance together, whether you are choosing to take it gently, or whether you want a much higher impact workout.
