About

This class is physical and a great way to improve your fitness and flexibility.
Be ready to experiment and have fun.

Joash specialises in Hip-Hop and krump styles and mixes this with contemporary Pacific and American dance practices.

Fusion dance combines different dance styles to create a new aesthetic. It is typically an improvised, lead-follow approach to dancing that does not conform to any particular defined dance styles. Fusion dancing may involve creating a new dance style, combining existing techniques, or both.

Please wear loose clothing so you can move easily, bring a small towel, water bottle and be ready to have fun and move your body.

Two sessions available per evening, take one or both sessions on the night.
