COLLABO CLASS! Dancehall meets Jazz-Fusion

Dancehall lovers, Jazz-Fusion lovers, fellow dancers, experimental people, I have very exciting news for you:

Thurs 28th Aug
at Studio68

This is a one-off workshop where you will work on technique & groove. Carribean vybz, african drums, jazz feelings, whining, ondulations and strong elongated legs… this class is going to challenge you sor sure!

Both artists are resident teachers at Studio68, their creative minds met and the idea of a collaboration became a must.

Put the date down in your diaries, make sure you leave work early on that day, or take the whole day off!
