Join us in this beginner friendly, community oriented class presented by Romy Keegan of Maple Street Dance. Ballet Afrique is a fusion of West African, ballet, modern and jazz forms. The class is in conjunction with the exhibition "Making Africa: A Continent of Design."

Owner and Director of Maple Street Dance Space, Romy's greatest joy is to introduce people of all ages and abilities to the healing, transformative power of dance, and to "hold space" for emerging dancers to discover the strength, grace and confidence gained through it's practice and expression.

After a lifetime of ballet training and over 25 years of African dance, she is especially thrilled to be following her creative inspiration through the exploration and development of a new style of contemporary fusion. Playfully blending African dance with Ballet, Modern & Jazz, she calls her new style, Ballet-Afrique, which is energetic and expressive while also being both graceful and accessible. 

Her beginner friendly classes are taught with careful intention to nurture, support and inspire dancers, while sharing important knowledge and understanding about good technique, placement and alignment.


Education programming for "Making Africa" is provide through the generous support of The Links, Incorporated



$1 - $4. Class is included with Museum admission.
