Dancehall classes on Tuesdays

Hi Dancehall lovers and students,

2017 is again a Dancehall year! Classes have started again, and we are sharing energy on the dancefloor as usual every TUE 6-7.30pm at Studio68 (Waterloo / Southwark tube stations).

Classes are £8, no need to book in advance, just pay at reception. It is a drop-in class, so no worries if you miss a week, you will be able to catch up as soon as you come back.

 

I am also very excited to say I have been awarded an Artist International Development Fund (Arts Council England / British Council), which is supporting me to go back to Jamaica later on this year! I will be continuing my research on Dancehall culture, do a Dancehall Theatre collaboration with Kimiko Miller and expand the future vision of 1000 Pieces Puzzle overseas.

 

Keeping Jamaica in my heart, and feeling those Dancehall groves in my bones, here we go for another year of sweating, smiling, giggling and dancehalling!

 

We love seeing more men coming to class!

In Jamaica, women seem to be fighting to get their space back in the Dancehall. Male crews are more and predominant on the dance floor, not always easy for solo female dancers to keep their space in the Dancehall session.

In Europe, audiences seem to stereotypically think it is a dance for women…

So I am soooo happy to see that students are gaining more knowledge about Dancehall culture and to see more and more male dancers coming through the door!

Check out one of my latest classes at Studio68.

Social vibes!

My Dancehall classes are more than a dance class… it’s an empowement class, it’s a space where all feel safe to express themselves creativelly through sweat and dancehall culture.

Wanna check out what the vibes are like in class? Yes of course we learn choreography at the end of class, but the journey leading up to it is sooooo socially beautiful, powerful and intense!

Join me on “MEET UP”!

My weekly Dancehall Classes are now on “Meetup”!

Dance classes are a way to enrich our social lives, Dancehall is a social dance form, and loads of students are creating true friendships in the studio. So let’s make our circle of happy dancers a bigger one!

We want more people having fun, working out and learning about Dancehall culture, and we hope you can support us by joining us on Meet Up and inviting your friends too.

Additional Class just for this weekend!

Do you need a bit more “Female Steps Only” in your life?

Wanna whine and shake that booty like there is no tomorrow?

OH YES, I feel yah!

Good news: I will be teaching a special one-off class this weekend:

Sat 15th Aug, 3-4.30pm at iAstudios

Because it’s a special workshop, we will be focussing on Dancehall Female Steps Only, and explore it choreographically with a fusion of Afro-vybz.

Let’s be creative, let’s be feminine, let’s be wild, let’s be fully self-expressed this weekend!!

I can’t wait to see all the Dancehall and Afrobeats enthusiasts, both tonight for my weekly class, and Saturday for a special weekend vibe!

It’s ladies time again!

Ladies! It’s time to have a “Female Steps Only” Dancehall class again! Oh yes, let’s shake up that booty, do the one drop and whine like there is no tomorrow!

This week we will look at the technique, the vocabulary and the rich legacy left by female dancehall dancers.

In the Dancehall, all women are beautiful, sexy and powerful. Self-expression and individuality is key.

The “Female Steps Only” sessions are just an amazing class to connect with our powerful feminine self, and a reminder to celebrate our bodies and ourselves as beautiful Queens and Godesses.

Join us in the studio this week on Tue or Thurs!
