Students have the unique opportunity to study with members of "Les Ballets Africains" the national ballet of Guinea, as well as observe their rehearsals and performances. Outside of classes students will attend local Doundounbas (drum and dance circles), shop at local markets, experience the night life of Conakry, have instruments hand made and most of all connect with the people of Guinea.
