Instructor: Peniel Guerrier
Haiti, the second independent republic in the Americas, partakes of three cultural sources: African, American, and European.

Peniel Guerrier draws on his extensive knowledge of Haitian folkloric dance to create original combinations within the different traditional Haitian rhythms. His dances enhance the energy and flow of traditional forms with beautiful, vivid body shapes.
