Gumboot dancing originated in the mines and dockyards of South Africa, where workers entertained themselves with the only things available to them: their voices, hands, and rubber work boots (gumboots). This dynamic and powerful dance style consists of rhythmic slaps, claps, stomping and singing. Workshop participants will learn a dance called Stagwa, brought to Canada by Themba Kunene.
Bring your Gumboots.
