Dancehall is a genre of music with a corresponding street dance style that originated in Jamaica. There are many subsets of this style, which include old skool, middle skool, new skool, and female/gyal style.
This class will focus on the gyal style of dancehall while learning more about the history and creators of the style. We will use grounded movements that are fundamental to dancehall, as well as incorporating more sensual movements that focus on the hips and waist— commonly seen in dancehall parties.
Due to the mature movements of this style, this class is for adults only.
Prerequisites: No prior dance experience necessary.
