The New African Dance

African choreographers are inventing new forms of dance, but no one seems to be sure what to call them. “African dance is, by nature and tradition, both multidimensional and heterogenous. To suggest that choreographers should stay within the boundaries of some preconceived national dance expression is relativistic; to describe their work as derivative of American or European modern dance choreographers is elitist.”
