*This is an online class. The teacher will be filmed live at Dance City and you will take part at home via Zoom.*

What is it? Whether an experienced dancer or new to dance, Afro Mix is an effective dance work-out comprising a mixture of Afro-Caribbean dance styles, such as dancehall/reggaeton, coupé décalé and azonto as well as elements of street, house, vogueing and commercial. This class will introduce you to styles that are not yet widely available across the North East, for example, Azonto – a seemingly simple, but extremely energetic and eye-catching social dance originating from Ghana. The immensely popular dancehall and reggaeton music (e.g. Sean Paul, Sean Kingston, Gyptian) spawned very characteristic, expressive dance movements (hip roll; pelvic grind; and the body roll), which will feature heavily in the Afro Mix class. Coupé décalé is mostly danced in East and Central Africa, and it has a Latin feel to it. It mostly draws on pelvic and hip movements combined with travelling, thus engaging you lower body and your major thigh muscles (such as quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes).

Who is it for? Anybody aged 16+, all levels.

What should I wear? Comfortable workout clothes, pumps/trainers.

Teacher Annesha Parkinson
