Inspired by dancers in music videos and thought “I’d love to dance like that!” Well now is your chance. This class will offer a fun, relaxed environment where we’ll learn elements of old and new school hip hop, commercial, jazz funk, reggaeton and much more!

Everyone will be encouraged to contribute their favourite song to the class playlist ensuring we all get the chance to get down to our fave jams! Some focus on technique with a side of choreography but a spotlight on having lots of fun and taking the opportunity to express our unique selves.
