Carol Lindsay

(Bachelor of Science, Elementary Education) Carol has enjoyed sharing Rhythm-Quest teaching and residencies for students of all ages since 1995. “My love of music, movement and Africa inspired me to study with several Addy family musicians and dancers from Ghana, West Africa.” She continues to perform with Sonkofa and other musical groups.

Residency Objectives:

They will be involved with creating the choreography necessary to present what they have learned in a performance.
