Tales from the African Dance Floor: A memoir in a letter

“As an African Dancer, I'm keenly aware that the experience is most divine when a connection is made with the Drummer and the Dancer” 
Carol Copper

Carol Copper has always been inspired to teach. That combined with her wish to help young people led her to a teaching career as a Teacher of English and Literacy. While teaching, she discovered a new love; African dance. She wants to share her passion and help others find a way to express themselves through this beautiful art form. 25 years of African dance helped guide her down a path of self-love and self-acceptance—a gift she’d like to help others achieve.
