Polyrhythm Is the concept that within movement there can be several rhythms happening at the same time.

Polycentrism
Is the concept of dancing to all of the rhythms, filling all the time.

Curvilinear
Is the reliance of symmetrical, proportional and profile oriented form. 

Dimensionality
Relates to texture in movement…something extra but promotes collectiveness in terms of spirit and individuality in terms of artistry. 

Epic Memory
Contributes to the ideal in the African artistic expression “Perfection cannot be achieved unless the experience or memory senses is drawn upon.

Repetition
Relates to the intensifying of a movement, sequence or the entire dance. 

Holistic
Refers to community, where parts of a creation or individual/s are emphasized and accentuated but not beyond the whole.
