Take Note

Sign up for African dance class at the Carlos

Dance to the rhythms of live African drums in "African Dance for Health and Well-being," a six-week class, beginning Monday, Nov. 7 at the Michael C. Carlos Museum.

The class will be taught by Emory dance affiliate Omelika Kuumba and members of Giwayen Mata, an all-female African dance and drumming group.

For six Monday afternoons until Dec. 12, "Giwayen Mata will warm you up, work you out and cool you down with movements, rhythms, and songs as well as explain the cultural contexts for each dance," says Elizabeth Hornor, director of education at the Carlos.

"You are guaranteed to experience your muscles thoroughly and leave each session feeling revived and rejuvenated," she adds, noting that Giwayen Mata is three-time winner of Creative Loafing's Choice Award for Top Traditional/World Music and Dance group.

The class costs $60 for museum members, $80 for non-members.

To register, contact Elizabeth Hornor at or 404.727.6118.
