Beschreibung:

Kadodi is a Gisu traditional freestyle dance from Eastern part of Uganda typically performed at the Gisu male circumcision initiation ceremony known as the Imbalu. Where all people dance together celebrating a new age of a grown up boy into manhood while roaming around the village with songs and drums accompanied by female dancers from which the new man chooses a partner to start a courtship journey together.

Kadodi dance is performed by both male and female dancers. From the circle of these dancers a male dance gets to choose a partner who they like in a courtship aspect. Until date it’s a circumcision and courtship dance.

Man with the scarf:

With the Afro and house accents we shall integrate the Imbalu steps, visualizing and minimalizing all these African influences into ONE. African cultural dances are multi-rhythmic and house dance having African movements as an influence makes it possible to blend the two elements together. With the help of drums and songs we will have the basics of kadodi dance and one basic step from house to integrate, variate in order to explore house as a club house and kadodi as an African accent.

This workshop is open for all levels, we recommend some experience with music/rhythm, movement/dance. If you are not sure about the level, you can always write us an e-mail. It’s purposely for roots/basics of two different styles. Foundation is always my goal.

Looking forward to explore this authenticity with all of you! 💚
