West African Influences on Latin American Folk Dance - Public Lecture

12:30 PM
West African Influences on Latin American Folk Dance
Public Lecture given by Guest Artist Marcus Hayes'99
During the summer of 2013, Marcus Hayes (Beloit College class of 1999), attended a level-one, Zumba certification class. From an innocent Zumba certification class, Hayes was inspired to travel to Medellín, Colombia to learn more about how the dance form Cumbia is related to the Atlantic slave trade. Through his experience in Colombia to examine Cumbia, Hayes began a journey to learn about and experience the wide variety of Latin American Folk Dances that have roots in West African Dance forms. His travels and study include Argentina, Uruguay, and the Dominican Republic for close examination of Mapalé.
More about Marcus:
Marcus Hayes is Associate Professor of Dance at Austin Peay State University (APSU) in Clarksville, TN, where he focuses on dance techniques, dance history and choreography. He received a dual Bachelor of Arts in History and Theatre Arts: Dance from Beloit College in Wisconsin and a Master of Fine Arts in Dance from Mills College in California. Marcus joined the faculty of APSU in fall 2006. He is a past president of the Tennessee Association of Dance Board of Directors and serves a regional director for the American College Dance Association (ACDA) National Board of Directors. He performed and choreographed professionally with the Without Shoes Modern Dance Company and has taught dance for the Chicago Park District, the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Rockford College, and the School for the Rockford Dance Company. Marcus’ research interests include identity politics in performance, formal issues in choreography, site-specific choreography and most recently the West African influences on the folk dances of Latin America.
He is the author of a textbook, Introduction to Dance: A Guide for Understanding Dance as an Art Form, available through Great River Learning.
