African Dance Workshop with Chéfiatou Tokou

Join in this two-part workshop to discover and learn about Cultural and Urban African Dance. The workshop is for all ages, from kids to adults - everyone is welcome!
Chéfiatou Tokou, a Massachusetts-based dancer and choreographer, is originally from Togo in West Africa. A life-long dancer, Chéfi began her professional career over a decade ago, focusing on teaching Contemporary, Cultural and Urban African dance. Although she teaches dance moves from across the continent, she is mostly specialized in West and Central African dance steps. She uses the historical significance of the dance moves as a means to teach about the country or region the steps originated from, as well as how to identify the style of song they’re set to. Chéfi is known for motivating her students to dream big and fully realize their life’s purpose. She is the founder of the Simdaca African Dance Academy. 
This program will meet in the first floor Presentation Commons at the Queset House.


This program is supported in part by a grant from the Easton Local Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
