The dance culture in Ghana is immensely growing. For many its just the fun of it that attracts them.
For Yolo star, Evelyn Akwamoa Ansah popularly known as Galle-Ansah, it is more than just fun. Its a way to grow one's confidence and also “a shortcut to happiness”.
The actress has opened a class dubbed ‘Dance With Galle’ that not only teaches participants on everything about dance but also train people in a dance genre of their choice.
In an interview with JoyNews, Miss Galle-Ansah stated that there is so much to explore in the world of dance, unfortunately, very few people know about it.
“I’ve realized how much I had benefited from dance, psychologically, health-wise and physically. I love its therapeutic nature,” she added.
She revealed that the Dance With Galle’s journey began in school while majoring in dance and minoring in sociology (the study of society).
The two gave her the opportunity to view dance differently and blend them so well.
She bewailed the limitations of dance to music videos and jumping on stage.
She stated that “as a dancer, you can work as a physiotherapist in clinics, be a content and concept creator, a choreographer, fitness coach, dance researcher, travel and tourism etc.”
To understand some people’s culture, one has to sometimes learn their dance first, she added.
“I’ve discovered there’s so much power in dance, which is why I want to be part of the dance world to share with the rest of the world.”
