This was one of the experiences I wanted to blog about. There are always so many wonderful things going on in DC and sometimes I actually get out and participate in them. When I heard about this I knew I couldn't miss it. Anything to do with dancing and Africa was going to be great.
So my friend Cady and I went and it was more than I could have hoped or dreamed. There were three different groups that performed and they were all amazing. The theater was really small and I was on the 3rd row so I felt like they were dancing just for me. There were African drums (it reminded me so much of Mozambique!) and costumes. There was stepping, slapping, break dancing and it was all incredible. I wanted to get up on stage and dance with them! We met some of the step dancers after the show and I asked them if they could teach me. They just kind of laughed...what? don't I look like I would be a good stepper? I actually did a step routine in high school for cheer. I'm sure my mom has that on video somewhere. I'm pretty sure I was good at it :)
