What You'll Get

Afro Russe is a fusion of African, Ballet, and Contemporary Dance developed by Elsie Mufuka. African dance is considered by most the root of all dances. Ballet is the basics of all dances. Nevertheless, Contemporary is the breakaway of formalized dance. 

Most believe African dance deserves the title of being the root of all dances because it has set the example of connecting people to be part of that collective rhythm and dance. The African community contributes to the society by the beat of the drum and the human voice. As for Ballet, it originated from the 16th and 17th century in France as a formalized type of performance dance. This style of dance has proved to be the best of working the entire body physically. However some believed that it brought restrictions to express all aspects of the human spirit. As a source of inspiration, Contemporary dance emerged from Modern and Postmodern dance. Breaking away from the formalized dance technique into more radical movement, it had given artists the freedom to mix styles such as traditional African dance.

The Afro Russe name was born in reference to Afro and Russe. Afro had come from the textured hair that has not been altered by any product symbolizing African Dance. The Russe comes from the Russian ballet company named Ballets Russes under the directorship of Sergei Diaghilev. The Ballets Russes was one of the most influential theatre companies of the twentieth century, in part because of its ground breaking artistic collaboration among contemporary choreographers, composers, artists, and dancers. The space between Afro and Russe gives the freedom of fusing everything together into radical movement, completing the birth of Afro Russe.
