Workshops and Classes
NEW: Let's Get It! - free Dance with Tony Truong
After the success of our K-Pop Dance Workshop, we were able to make it a series! "Let's Get It!" is a six-week dance series led by B-Boy Tony Truong. This first session will focus on the hugely popular and growing K-Pop genre! Come and learn some great moves to some of your favorite K-Pop hits! Each session will start with a quick warm-up and then the day will be split, learning the choreography for two different songs. There will also be time to just dance, without having to learn choreography to show what you know or learn things that you may have never seen before! These classes are free but registration is required!
Saturday, October 6 - November 10; 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Cost: Free, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
