Learn African dance from top instructor
A master teacher of West African dance will hold classes this weekend.

Last year, Camara opened a school, Alla Tan Tou Dance Productions and Island Retreat, on Roume Island, Guinea.
His 90-minute classes, suitable for beginners through advanced dancers and accompanied by live drumming, are at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow in Manoa (call 741-4626 for location) and 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Pupukea Recreation Center on the North Shore.
Cost is $15 per class or both for $25.
