Remember how I said I was going to reclaim the 15 minutes of dance fame I missed out on last month? Well, I joined a dance group. It’s a Ghanaian dance troupe that just started about a year ago. Funnily enough, I’m the only Ghanaian in the group aside from the instructor- go figure. Ah well, feels great to be back in the dancing game.
I’m learning new dances and different versions of ones I already know like Kpanlogo and Fume Fume. Though I still have to watch the other women to remember the order of the moves, I know it will only take me a few weeks to remember them naturally and be able to move through each dance fluidly. My mind an body work well together when it comes to rhythm, coordination and remembering routines when it comes to dance. If only this kind of memory would have come to my aid in university when studying for macroeconomics exams or calculus. Imagine if you could dance out the answers to your test or perform an interpretation of your philosophy essay through dance? Can we say 4.0 gpa?
