Dancehall is a traditional style of dance that has formed from the Reggae “riddims” of Jamaica.
It is a sexy, earthy and powerful form of dance using hip and chest isolations and some aspects of African dance movement.
Today, Dancehall is featured and mixed with numerous artists such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Sean Paul & Major Lazer.
In this class, you will learn to control smooth and quick movements from your core through to your chest, hips and thighs including isolations, body rolls and booty pops!
You are sure to leave this class sweaty and worked!!              
Come and learn about the history, terminology, and most of all, the movement of this exciting and fun style of dance.

Subsdance Dance Studio provides Brazilian Samba classes from beginner to advanced- after this level you can audition to become a ‘Glamourosa’ and perform with the crew who perform weekly shows in and around Canberra.

Team Rockit is a Canberra based Hip Hop dance crew featuring dancers who have extended themselves on a national and global level. Focusing upon creating pieces of entertaining art, Team Rockit's approach to dance is to draw out the energy and artistry of it and create an action packed show for all to enjoy.
These classes are an Open level, and warm up will run for half an hour, allowing people to arrive in time for Choreography if necessary. Please ensure you warm up before you start dancing.

Some accolades from Team Rockits performances include:
-New York/LA tour 2012 
-AIS Arena halftime show 
-Base in the Place 2011
-Timomatic Show at the 'Palms' 2012
