Why do poeple in Africa dance?

People in Africa dance to celebrate the life that we are given. They celebrate that God has given them food from the animals in the wild. They enjoy dancing. When the sun goes down and the moon and the stars come out they get some homemade instruments and start to play them, and they enjoy themselves because they start to DANCE!

The children go to their mums and dads and dance with them. Then the children go to bed, but the music carries on with some poeple who don't have children dancing. Then the other adults come back and start to dance and have a good time. Then the music dies down and the homemade instruments get put away and everyone goes to sleep dreaming about the lovely time they have just had. Then they wake, a long day goes by and they start it all over again when the moon and the stars come back out.
