How to dance Azonto – tutorials and textual explanations of moves

HOW TO DANCE AZONTO

I have noticed that a few of you enjoyed the previous videos I shared around how to dance Azonto. So I thought you might like to learn a bit more about how to dance on it!

There are a lot of Azonto dance videos out there but not that many tutorials. I have been collecting the ones I found the best ones and hope you will enjoy them. They show you different basic and more intermediate moves.

Finally, this article explains to you how each body part moves to create the azonto dance (second part of the article below the first video):

Cirkafrika – an African circus touring in France in February 2018

I have watched for the first time a few years ago this amazing  Cirkafrika, an African circus on a French channel.

First of all, I would like to share with you a snippet of their upcoming show as well as information about its storyline, artists, tour dates, etc…

cirkafrika - an African circus touring in France in February 2018

What is Cirkafrika?

Cirkafrika is an African based circus employing 50 artists across Africa, namely:

  • musicians,
  • dancers,
  • acrobats,
  • contortionists,
  • diabolos,
  • jugglers,
  • acrobatic balancers,
  • tap-dancers,
  • gumboots, hoops, bouncing balls artists,
  • acrobats,
  • foot jugglers.

They mainly tour in France. Similarly to Le Cirque du Soleil’s concept, this circus doesn’t make use of animals.

Now, what is the current show’s theme?

This year, the show tells the story of a small gifted monkey going for an adventurous trip to the vast plains of China. He meets many monsters ready to eat him to obtain 10 000 life years. But it’s  without counting on the superpowers of the small animal, at times funny, at times powerful and at times crafty. The monkeys’ king is the widely known story told to Chinese children.

Cirkafrika is currently touring in main cities in France from 3rd to 11th February 2018. You can watch a video teaser for this year’s show here:
