Dance Workshop with Fly Lady Di


House and hip hop dance emerged and became popular in the early 1990s by a dance crew called The Mop Tops out of New York City. Fly Lady Di had the privilege of training with them intensively while she lived in New York and wishes to preserve these dances by teaching them worldwide. The styles could be described as funky, energetic, soulful and rhythmic - as their influences are Latin dance, African dance and American musical theatre (tap and jazz). In this workshop, students will get a chance to learn a bit of history behind the movements, brush up on dance vocabulary and discover a new aesthetic behind popular dance styles. You'll also get to bust a move (or two) as well. Undeniably fun, intense and enlightening.
