House dancing for everyone

Would you like to learn how to house dance or to become even better at it? Then join this 12-week course in Absalon. We dance on Thursdays at 19:45.

 

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.
