Dance Classes

At last I am able to add a photo of Joie de Vivre...the June Recital. Here we are performing SOFA for our audience.
Dance clases have begun again at the GYMC, 75 Cardigan Street on Mondays at 7:45pm. Next Monday is our third out of the 13 classes of the session, which will end on December 20th. This session we have begun with Kuku/Coucou and Kassa: something easier for beginners, somethng more challenging for the rest. And both are very enjoyable, rhythmic and aerobic.
I welcome back all my continuing dance friends and the new ones who have found us this session. At this point, dance is my only exercise. So dance, Adwoa, dance. Dance for the good of your heart, muscles. ligaments and bones. Dance for your health, but most of all, dance for your soul. My soul says, YES! But what about yours?

Between Sisters, a novel, by Adwoa Badoe

September is here, and the release of my new YA novel, "Between Sisters." published by Groundwood Books, House of Anansi Press in hardcover and paperback. The book is an urban coming of age story of a sixteen year old girl, Gloria, in Ghana. The book has been released in Canada and the USA. If it is not on the shelf of your favorite bookshop, then ask them to order in for you. As much as you will enjoy the characters and the story, you will enter into life in Ghana with its rhythms, scents and tastes. Read, read, read. Buy one for a friend.
