You Want True Happiness? Try These Traditional Moves.

You do not need an article to explain why dancing goes with happiness; You have experienced that several times. What you really need is a guide to fully explore this source. With the intrusion of contemporary and imported musics, our traditional dances have become more fun and highly crazy when you try doing them in your closet. You think you can dance? You need to try these traditional moves. Be advised to eat or be ready to spend energy on this passion-driven fun.

1. Agbadza.

The name itself creates an energetic mood. Originating from the Ewe tribe of Volta Region, the dance involves two main movements: A slow step where the arms move back and forth while extended downwards, and a fast step where the arms flap at the side with elbows extended. 

2. Kpanlogo.

It screams happiness all over. The social dance is popular among the the Ga-Adangbe people of Greater Accra. The kpanlogo dance is often performed low to the ground with bent knees and bent back and frequently features sexually suggestive motions. You never will be sad when the dance is in your abode.

3. Borborbor.

This is another Ewe dance which does not disappoint to dash out amusement for free.  The dance that goes with the music usually involved the use of two white handkerchiefs. As the dancer, you move in a circle while displaying "waist power" skill and twirling the handkerchiefs. It is just a lovely sight to behold when performed in groups, but more fun when you take it personal in private. Thank me later.
