The African dance when in progress takes total control of the performer on stage, as if in a trance. Anyone who knows African rythm will definitely show some movement due to the powerful effects which others call mystic.

What do you think?

I took African dance for about a year or two when I was a teenager. Until this day, if I hear African drums I jump up and start dancing. The movements come back to me as if I've been practicing all this time, and I haven'. Yes, drums grab a hold of my body for sure!

I'm from Africa and I definitly have to agree! The african kids at school always had he best rythm and even when there was no music they could dance to a perfect rythm - I guess the drums still beat in thier soul and body.
And definitly, the drum rythm is so cathcy, it takes control of you and you cant think about anything else.
It's really amazing watching traditional dances.
