On Tuesday, January 31, 2023, we have a guest instructor teaching a one hour Dancehall workshop at our Social Tuesdays: SBK Latin Dance Night.
Dancehall is a style of dance and music that branched off of reggae in 1970s Jamaica. Dancehall influences are becoming more prevalent in modern hip-hop routines and even within partner dances such as Kizomba. In the workshop, we will be learning some Old, Mid and NewSkool Dancehall Moves! Come through and learn some open level friendly, yet FIERY moves to warm up from all of this cold weather!
