go to Japanese page

What kind of African dance do you do in your classes here?
This is a street dance with pop music from Ghana and Nigeria in West Africa. Below is a Youtube dance video I made with my students.
I have no sense of rhythm and have never danced at all, can I still participate?
It's no problem at all. Beginners are welcome all the time. The goal is to let yourself open up and have fun. If you can't dance, it's no problem at all.
Can I participate online?
Participation via Zoom is also available; you can check out the Zoom video on Youtube. If you are interested, please check the Youtube video.


Very beginner's class

Sunday 10:30~12:00📍Itabashi Studio
Monday 19:30~21:00 📍水道橋マースタ 

Please check our calendar 

For absolute beginners, we offer a thoroughly foundational class. We focus relentlessly on repetition to solidify the essential basics needed for Afro dance. Even experienced dancers who feel their moves never quite hit the mark often lack a solid foundation. We minimize choreography and instead emphasize mastering the fundamentals. If you're eager to build a strong foundation, this is the class for you. 


Copy Challenge Class

Wednesday 19:30-21:00
Every Thursday 10:30-12:00

📍Itabashi Studio

Please check our calendar as we are sometimes closed.

In this lesson, FATIMATA deciphers the choreography from influencer dance videos on instagram and other social media, breaks it down into basic steps, and teaches you how to dance the choreography. This is a very popular class where students learn by checking the original videos over and over again, so they can learn the fundamentals of Afro while imagining the nuances of the real world without having to go abroad.


AfroDance Basic Class 

Every Saturday 11:00-12:30

📍Sutudio AZ

Please check our calendar as we are sometimes closed.

The students will practice the isolations (basic exercises in which the body is moved in parts, such as the feet, legs, and feet) necessary for dancing and 30 basic steps are practiced with a timer. After that, we will dance choreography that applies the steps. This class is popular among those who want to learn many Afro-dance basics and steps.
