We are honored to have these Master-level dance and drumming instructors teaching at our weekly San Francisco Bay Area classes and/or the Congolese Dance & Drum Workshops. And although we have not mentioned here all the names of our many apprentice dance teachers and drummers, their great contributions are invaluable to the CDDW experience and are much appreciated. Matondo!
DRUM INSTRUCTORS (AND DANCE ACCOMPANIMENT)
WITH US IN SPIRIT
Wa Dia, Fua-Yika Dio
We are saddened that some of our most beloved teachers have passed on. They are always present with us in spirit. Their legacy lives on in the great joy and beauty they gave to all of us through their presence and their teaching. Their influence will be felt for generations to come. We invite you to view photographs and some of the many tributes to these beloved members of our Congolese dance community.
