Pop Up Class
AFRO POP DANCE
Saturday, June 22nd 2019
with Brianna Rhodes
Afro-pop class explores a compilation of Afro-House, Afro-Carribean, Afro-Brazilian (Orisha’s), and Afro-Beat. The movement draws from popular genres of black dance. The flow of the class begins with a warm up, which follows with material that moves across the floor introducing some of the fundamental steps within these genres. These steps build upon each other to create an ending combination that get’s you moving, sweating and grooving.
