This Dancehall/Ragga Jam-flavored, high-energy yet balanced class will provide a seasoned taste of Jamaican culture.
You get started with a warmup that loosens the body while introducing you to Caribbean steps and guidelines. We'll progress into a section dedicated to the basics--the structure of Dancehall--which is seen in many popular videos from your favorite Reggae/Dancehall artists, ie. Row di Boat, Bogle dance and worldly known Willie Bounce.
We then change gears with a segment called “Follow di Leader" where we break into interactive steps experience the party feel of Dancehall. That’s where the discipline was formed...in the streets.
This assists in students' growth by allowing for advancement in form and technique throughout the class as it intensifies with more complex steps and routines.
Sir Ledgen fosters a challenging and fun-filled environment where dancers learn, dance, and sweat to Caribbean music. Come one and all, for the love of Dancehall.
