Class Descriptions

DanceHall

This class will offer an introduction to the study of the popular Caribbean dance called Dancehall. Highlights of the course will include a warm up where students will get initiated through various dancehall steps eg. Bogle, Wackey Dip, Peppa Seed, and Butterfly; moves that are consistently called upon to create new dances.

This will help students become better acquainted with the different styles of the dance discipline leading them in smooth transition to more technical and complex moves to be learned throughout the class.

There will also be a blended learning approach incorporating different genres of reggae (dancehall) music into the weekly routines. Bringing a humorous and comedic way of teaching this class will provide a fun atmosphere for all students
