Afro Fusion House with Kim Holmes
Afro-Fusion House is a mix of traditional African, Salsa, Merengue, Samba and Rumba dances, mixed with the contemporary styles of House and Hip-Hop. Different musical rhythms will inspire your body to move fluidly and energetically as you explore cultures through dance from the ancient Malian empire to areas in the southern hemisphere. You’ll learn footwork and choreographed sequences for a learning experience that will be soul-freeing, fun-filled and energy-building.
Learn the smooth, sexy, and soulful art of Chicago Style Steppin’. Originating in Chicago, Steppin’ has its roots in Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, and the Bop, and is a sophisticated social partner dance usually done to R&B, Soul, Neo-Soul, Jazz, and Funk music. It grew in popularity in the ‘90s with the release of R. Kelly’s song, “Step In the Name of Love,” and with classic songs like, “Be Thankful for What You Got” by William DeVaughn in the ‘70s. Beginning students will learn fundamentals like the basic “8-count” and simple turns, and intermediate and advanced students will learn to enhance their technique, style, and turns before moving on to more complex combinations.
