What you'll learn in this dance class:

Come and learn dances of decades past!

1st Monday of every Month
The 'Roaring 20's'
Come and learn The Charleston and early Jazz moves like The Jitterbug and The Cakewalk! The twenties was a time for dance when African rhythms joined the mainstream and the Flapper style was all the rage. Join me and experience a truly special time in American history-and bring your ‘Happy Feet’ !

2nd Monday of every Month
70’s Disco
Come and learn some iconic and classic dance moves from one of the greatest films ever-in my opinion-Saturday Night Fever! We will take a close look at The Hustle and more specifically The Tango Hustle. Feel free to bring your platforms ; ).

3rd Monday of every Month
The 90’s ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’
Do you love watching music videos just to see your favorite artist dance? Growing up I loved to watch Aaliyah videos and one of the most popular choreographers to work with her (and Michael Jackson, Meghan Trainor, to name a couple) is known as FATIMA. Join me as we learn some HIP-HOP moves from their music videos and relive the 90’s!

4th Monday of every Month
50’s Sock Hop!
Come experience mid-century America through dance and music! I love the idea of being a ‘vintage dancer’ for a day...let’s learn how to Hand Jive, Stroll, and Twist! Feel free to bring your bobby socks : ) !
