Move in the heart of rhythm
with this lively, accessible mix of traditional and contemporary poly-rhythmic styles. The simplicity of the format invites each dancer to cultivate their own joyful, personal experience inside roots oriented group movement.

"Wassa Dance is an experience in connecting ancient rhythms to the soul body in motion. It all starts from the ground up. Lara has a way of teaching you how to move with insight, clarity and exuberance. I noticed ways of moving and details of the dance I had never thought of before. Lara has a strong ability to bring your attention to the subtleties of African dance without losing the passion and joy of expression. She has a warrior's heart, a dancer's grace and she can get you shaking your booty in no time flat!"
