Summer Sizzle - Special Class in Kung Fu and Hip Hop

Where: The Dance Complex. www.dancecomplex.org, 617-547-9363. 

When: Wednesday and Friday, Aug. 9 + 11, 2-4 p.m. Open to all ages and all levels; no experience necessary

Hip Hop/Kung Fu Workshop, a dynamic and exciting movement experience, will teach the students kung fu moves and work them into the context of hip hop routines to inspiring beats and tunes.  While the majority of class time will be spent on practical execution of the moves, there will also be discussion about the history, theory and practice of both styles.  Martial moves from a variety of genres formed an important piece of the fabric of hip-hop from its inception and Kung Fu is one of the most dance/like of these.    Exercises, drills and routines will draw parallels between the two styles in such a way as to be easily absorbed, thereby strengthening the technique of any hip hop dancer and deepening the awareness of rhythm and movement dynamics of any martial arts practitioner.  You do not need to have experience in either dance or martial arts to participate.  Class will be structured in such a way as to be engaging for the novice as well as the experienced mover.  A great physical workout will be had by all! Call The Dance Complex 617-547-9363 for more information.  You may reach Sharon directly at 617-283-4596.
