About this title

Synopsis:

Come along as we explore the fascinating origins of African dance, as rich and diverse as the continent itself. Discover unique rituals, colorful costumes, and rhythmic instruments. Learn about dances that have been passed from generation to generation through the ages. See those very same dances come alive with a new generation of dancers.

In captivating detail, Drumbeat in Our Feet illuminates the beauty, history, and energy of African dance. Readers of all ages will delight in this drum-beating, hand-clapping, foot-stomping celebration of culture and tradition.

About the Author:

Patricia A. Keeler first fell in love with African dance after watching a Batoto Yetu performance at the Victory Theater in New York City. Pursuing the idea for a book, Keeler met J·lio LeitÒo and spent many weekends observing the young dancers in his troupe. With this book, Keeler hopes to introduce the richness of African dance to young readers everywhere. She lives with her husband in Hoboken, New Jersey.

J·lio LeitÒo was born in Luena, Angola. He came to the United States in 1985 and has taught dance for more than fifteen years. LeitÒo founded Batoto Yetu, an African dance troupe for children in 1990. He views sharing the dances of his homeland with a new generation as a way to "make sure our firsthand account of history is passed on." LeitÒo lives with his wife and daughter in New York City.
