The Southern African Culture of Song and Dance Course will perform
selected traditional South African songs and dances. The class’s
performance will reflect on various occasions and situations of the
various peoples of the Southern African region. Emphasis will be on
each performance’s relation to the cultures of the South African
region. The class will be divided into two main components, the
performance and the learning of Southern African traditional songs
and dances. The performance component will include warm-up exercises
to equip the body with the essential stamina, synchronization,
agility, and melodic awareness. The second part of learning will
focus on selected South African songs and dances, together with
their historical and cultural contexts. Assessment will be based on
both performance and written work.
