CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

BOLLYWOOD FUSION
In this class, dancers will explore how the basic foundations of Indian dance styles (folk, classical, and more), can infuse new possibility, awareness, and energy into urban dance forms. In bringing these art forms together, you'll focus on some fundamentals in Indian classical/folk movements (hand gestures & footwork), grooves and flow, style, demonstration through choreography, and of course sharing and FUN!

HEELS
The desire to be flawless dancing in a pair of stilettos is one that we’ve all had, or maybe just the confidence to feel like a top model when wearing a new favorite shoe. Open to all those who want to let loose and feel sexy, this lively and high energy class will have you ready to rock your freakum dress! ***Don’t forget your favorite pair of heels to dance in! No platforms. Leather-soled shoes are best for the dance floor***

HOUSE
This open level class will introduce students to the street dance form born in Chicago and NYC clubs. Students will learn the technique behind foundational components of house dance such as jacking and footwork, but emphasis will be on the feeling, spirituality, and freedom of house culture. Sneakers are recommended.
