Dance Mix Mature class features music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, with a few more recent songs thrown in now and then.

A moderately-paced class where you can take out any movements (like jumps) that don’t suit your body, but where you can amp things up if you want to get more of a workout.

What type of dance is it?

In our Dance Mix class, you’ll start to learn the building blocks of dance, like step, hop, jump, turn, kick, and then put them together into different combinations that get more complex as you learn more.  On top of these building blocks, we layer style, so you can perform it in the different styles of dance, like jazz, contemporary, latin, hip hop, and more.  You’ll also learn movements that are unique to specific dance styles.

In each class, you’ll get a good warmup to prepare your body to dance, then learn a series of combinations (short dance routines), each with a different style or feel.  Towards the end of class you’ll do some travelling steps across the room, and finish with a deep stretch to release all the tension in your muscles.
