Sabar Dancing

As  someone who grew up spending up to 15 hours a week in the dance studio, I wanted to do a little research on Senegalese dance. Sabar is a type of drum originating in Senegal, but Sabar can also refer to the traditional dance performed to the sound of Sabar drums. I spent over an hour watching youtube video after youtube video of incredible dancing but I was really impressed by the photos this photographer captured of the dance while in Senegal. I also looked up the choreographer she mentions in this gallery and found this cool video on his Facebook page. He is currently working on a project that brings together people from countries all over the world to dance Sabar together!
