SHANGO

Our Dance ' Shango' is inspired by the music of Angelique Kidjo. Kidjo is singer-songwriter, actress and activist noted for her diverse musical influences and creative music videos. 

Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.

“Shango” is a powerful tribute to the Yoruba god of thunder and lightning, Shango. In Yoruba mythology, Shango symbolizes strength, passion, and change. Kidjo brilliantly embraces these characteristics in her song, infusing it with thrilling beats and electrifying rhythms. Through her energetic vocals and compelling lyrics, Kidjo pays homage to a deity deeply rooted in African culture, while also highlighting the importance of embracing one’s heritage and ancestry.

This isn't just about following choreographed steps; it's about surrendering to the music, allowing it to guide our bodies in a dance of freedom and expression. While our movements may be guided, there's ample space for individual interpretation, encouraging each dancer to find their unique groove and rhythm.

The joyous earworm “Agolo,” whose iconic music video celebrated motherhood and African deities more than two decades before a pregnant Beyoncé staged a viral photo shoot as Oshun, the Yoruba river goddess.

Kidjo comes from the former slave port of Ouidah, whose vodun religion left a defining mark on the diaspora—a fact that she’s savvily employed to position herself as its worldliest musical medium. As she once quipped about covering Jimi Hendrix, “Who could better claim to be a ‘Voodoo Child’ than me?”

More than just a dance class, ENERGYBODi Dance Sensation is a holistic exploration of body, mind, and soul. Through fluid movements that honor the natural rhythms of our bodies, participants are invited to explore their inner landscapes, release tensions, and tap into their innate sense of creativity and joy.

From exhilarating beats to soul-stirring melodies, each session is carefully curated to provide a space for personal growth and healing. Whether you're seeking a therapeutic release, a fun workout, or simply a chance to connect with others in a supportive environment, ENERGYBODi Dance Sensation offers something for everyone.
