Drop It Like It’s Hot: Adult Hip Hop
Everyone needs a way to warm up in the winter time, and a fun hip hop dance class is just the way to do it! In this 5-week dance class, we’ll get sexy, old school, technical and LOUD! Each week we’ll focus on a different style of hip-hop, including at least one week of heel training. We’ll let loose and discuss the individually and confidence that movement can provide humans, as well as learn the foundations of hip-hop dancing. Spend an hour a week in pure, unadulterated fun!
For beginner and intermediate dancers. Bring comfortable clothes and tennis shoes that you can move in. Heels will be optional for a few classes and you will know ahead of time when to expect to bring those to class.
