Do you need help on the dance floor?
DO you dance like a left-footed dad at a wedding?
Does John Travolta have more groove in his little finger than you have in your entire body?
Well now is your chance to improve your dance floor status.
Represent Dance Company has just launched its new Absolute Beginners Funky Street Dance Class for adults (over 21s).
Head dance instructer David Cowley explained: ‘What we call “street” or “hip hop” dance started life in the clubs in the 1970s as a fun, high energy, funky social dance. And we want to get back to basics with this brand new dance experience for adults.’
He said: ‘Although a lot of people - especially the kids we teach - really enjoy working hard to master difficult and impressive dance moves they’re definitely not for everybody and I wanted to create a class that is all about having a good time to good music - as more of a social experience. The aim is for it to be a really good night out that brings back that feel good atmosphere.
‘There’s not been a class like it on the island before. Line dancing, salsa and other styles have all proved really popular because of the relaxed, social atmosphere you find there and this is definitely a similar experience but with a totally different dance and music style to what’s been done before. It’s not just dance steps though - students will learn the right way to groove to the beat, how to use their whole body when they dance and how to create that hip hop style in every move.’
He added: ‘A lot of adults have contacted us over the years asking for lessons just in how to dance in a nightclub. If they really pay attention to the details that we go over in this new class not only will their dancing look great but they’ll have a foundation to build on if they ever want to progress to the more advanced moves that we teach in other classes.
‘So although it’s primarily designed to be a really good night out, it’s the perfect introduction to the street dance community that we’ve built here on the island as well.
‘Students can expect straightforward steps and routines, great music and of course it does burn the calories as well, so it’s the perfect way to get to work on those New Year’s resolutions.’
The classes take place between 8.30pm and 9.30pm on Tuesdays at Fiesta Havana in Douglas. No previous dance experience is necessary. Pay £5 on the door.
