A dance workshop open to all experience levels with members of Tari Aceh! Participants will learn Saman, a popular dance form from Indonesia that combines text, poetry, and movement. The dances feature various forms of body percussion, such as clapping, and synchronized movements that make a group of dancers look as if it is a single being. This is a rare opportunity to learn these dances from the all-female group.

This event is part of Muslim Women's Voices at Wesleyan.
