Workshop structures
Based on the treasure trove of experience of by now 27 years of studying and working in teaching processes, the structure and teaching method will always be adapt to the level of skills and previous knowledge of each person and group.
So the aim of the workshop can be very different depending on the ambition and intent of the person or group. As usual, basic rhythm and dance pattern can be internalised during shorter workshops than complex structures. But even though one day workshops will just open the huge field of african rhythms and dances, a impressive polyphonic structure can already be achieved by playing in a good structured little group.
