On Thursday July 30th, the successful House Dance class that we (Fivestarboogie Dancers’ Czarina Mirani and Carlos Morris) recently held at Smartbar will be brought back, this time as part of the Chicago Cultural Center’s House Music series of workshops.
Open to all levels of dancers from beginners to pros, this class will give a brief history of the evolution of what is now called House dancing. Some of the basic foundation movements such as the footwork will be shown along with a short routine at the end of the class.
The workshop will be at the dance studio of the Chicago Cultural Center (Randolph and Michigan) from 6-7:30pm. It’s free and open to the public.
Workshop: The Art of House Dance
Learn the right moves at this fun class open to all levels of dancers. Basic foundation movements and footwork will be taught along with a progression of moves leading to what is now called House dancing – drawing influences from African, tap, salsa and capoeira forms. The workshop is led by Czarina and Carlos of Fivestarboogie Dancers, whose class was awarded “Best Dance Class” by the Chicago Reader.
