Afro-Cuban Dance:
Moving to the Clave Rhythm Pattern



Dancers demonstrate using the clave rhythm movements practiced in “Warming Up to the Clave Rhythm” to put together a brief dance sequence combining locomotor movement and non-locomotor shapes.

Suggested Uses:

  • Watch to build your own knowledge and understanding of Afro-Cuban dance and influence, or for ideas on how to teach the dance movements to your students.
  • Show to demonstrate and guide warm-up or movement activities with students.
  • Show in combination with African dance excerpts to compare and contrast.
