Trying to decide which classes to take can be overwhelming. First of all, you don’t have to choose! Try everything: Our $40 Introductory Month is designed to give you chance to taste it all.
For some of us, it’s information overload; we don’t yet know what this stuff is! A common question is: What is Waacking? In Vince’s words, Waacking is a dance of joy, sensuality and sexuality. It presents the opportunity to be raw, graceful, playful, and fierce all at once. (Check out UMA founder Vince Johnson Waacking at Second Sundae!) There’s more info about all our adult dance classes on the class description page.
We also suggest you think about what kind of music you like. Here’s a general breakdown.
What kind of music do you like?
Disco: try Waacking
Funk: try Breaking or Hip Hop (a lot of our Hip Hop teachers incorporate Locking into their classes, which is super funky!)
Soul: try Breaking
House or Electronic Music: try House!
Pop & Hip Hop: Dance Fitness or Hip Hop
Jazz: try Solo Jazz or catch our next 6 week Swing Dance series.
Some of us may feel intimidated or unqualified. “You’re telling me that I, as an adult human, can learn to break dance?” Yes. Yes we are. It starts with coming to class and learning the foundations. Our friendly class atmosphere means you might even meet other adult beginners breakers you want to practice with! We know there are lots of video tutorials online where you can learn moves. While this can be valuable, it doesn’t compare to face time with a seasoned instructor, someone who is part of the hip hop community, who has earned their stripes in Battle but is also passionate about teaching the form to newcomers of all ages.
There’s a lot more styles out there: Lite Feet, Popping, Krumping, etc. Stay posted to our Instagram and Facebook to see what special events and workshops are happening!
