House for intermediate

18:00 - 19:30 Klubben 1. sal 1200 kr

If you already have some experience with house dance but would like even more. Then join this 10 or 9-week course in Absalon. We dance on Wednesdays at 18:00.

Beginners can join the House for all-course.

House is a dynamic and rhythmic genre that has lots of footwork, coordination and body grooves. You will break a sweat and hopefully have fun. We work towards gaining a sense of freedom in our individual step language and use special steps and freestyle. You don’t need any experience with house or dancing in general to join the course.

House originates in the 80’s Latin and Afro-American dance club scene in New York. The music is deep & soulful house music. It is a social dance, where cultures melt together in celebration of free expression and communication through dance. The genre uses techniques from tap dancing, hip-hop, samba, capoeira, jazz-rock, disco, lindy hop, breaking and African + Afro-Caribbean dancing.
