Dance Class with Nogaye Ngom

April 19, 2012

This video is from a community dance class taught by Nogaye Ngom at Green Street Studios in Cambridge, MA on April 14, 2012. Nogaye said the bakk that she was teaching was one that was “very important to her” because she and her brother Malick Ngom (heard singing the rhythm in the first part of the video) created it for a dance competition in Senegal. Nogaye won the competition and after winning the competition this bakk was danced by dancers all over Senegal.
