May Dances of the Month

Wolosodon (May 7th & 14th)
Instructed by Toni Young

Wolosodon is a dance of slaves that originated from the Mandinka tribe of Gambia. The Mandinkas of ancient Mali had four main social groups: nobles, commoners, artisans, and slaves called Woloso. Traditionally, Wolosodon expresses the slaves liberation from bondage. It is also a rite-of-passage dance of the Wolof people in Senegal and Gambia often performed by teenage girls marking their passage into adulthood.
Lamban (May 21st & 28th)
Instructed by Shaunta Peeples
Lamban/Lamba is a family of rhythms dating back to the 14th Century, danced by the Malinke, Kasonke, and Bamana (or Bambara) ethnic groups of the Mali Empire. There are many different Lamban dances. From the 14th century until now, a lot of history has been given about the Lamban family of dances and rhythms. From the Griot, the dances are spirited dances embodying the soul and spirituality of the people, honoring the creator and ancestors, giving thanks, and asking for blessings.
