There is a chance to learn African dance in Sidmouth on Saturday, November 9.
The session will be led by South Sudanese dancer Rachel de Garang, who has 25 years' experience in teaching and dancing.
Dance and music in Africa are a part of everyday life, not a spectator activity. There are dances for different occasions, rituals and ceremonies, and people of all ages take part.
Although traditional dances are still taught, the form has evolved, new styles have been created and fused with western and eastern influences.
Rachel de Garang's African Fusion Dance session takes place from 2pm until 4pm at the Dance Studio, Unitarian Old House, All Saints Road, Sidmouth.
