Hip Hop/Dancehall and Afro Latin Jazz@8pm
The urban sounds of our Hip Hop culture not only move us in the gym, in the car, at parties, but the sounds and beats are constructed to affect your pulse, infused from a PanAfrican cultural influence of old school, new school and urban flavor reflective of the great music and beat engineers. Chris breaks down beats, movement vocabulary and sticatto/legato movement in a way that will make even the mommas want to get down. Boost your week with this evening power boost with recording artist/choreographer/dancer/composer Chris LaVaughn. The last class of the month, Vanessa will lead an AfroLatin Jazz class that weave what you've learned into a contemporary fusion class to help you connect all the components using full corporal movement tied to Modern dance concepts of weight, space and time.
