Well, first you should know that African dance is not really for the typical dancer. I take classes in it and it is defininately the most amazing dance I have ever seen. You really have to be able to get into, throw your head around and really absorb the drum beat. It's an earthy dance, full of ancient traditions and emotion. Not to mention it includes an intense physical workout. But just because I said it's not for everyone, doesn't mean I think you shouldn't try it. I think it's great that you're trying something that most dancers wouldn't even consider. You'll want to be barefoot, no booty shorts, probably pants and a tank top, plenty of water, and have an open mind. Good luck and have fun.

I wud read up or collect as much info as you can of african dancing, because it aint the typical kind of dancing an you might be really shocked when you get there. Also make sure you really warm up especially your legs, because there is a lot of low movement and also elevation so you have been warned!
