Event Overview

The Mashed Potatoes, The Jerk, and The Pony are relics of an era of popular culture in which different music had correspondingly different dance moves. Today, a shameful majority of us use the same foot shuffle, hip sway, and arm flap whether the speakers are blaring Lil Wayne, Janet Jackson, James Brown, or LCD Soundsystem.

Fantastic at Facebooking, genius Google-ers, and perfect at putting the pedal to the metal, so many of us have mastered the art of all things sedentary, and it’s high time we put forth some time and energy into knocking good dancers off of the endangered species list.

Folks, it’s time to learn some new moves.

In this introduction to hip-hop dance class, Dabblers will start with a few warm-ups and stretches, and move into a basic routine choreographed to “Unusual” by recording artist Trey Songz. Dabblers will leave the class with a great work-out, some new moves, and a connection to their inner Beyonce.
