with Lex Ramirez
Wednesdays / 7:00 – 8:00 PM
This class mixes elements of hip hop foundation, social dance, and personal style to create a short, fun combo to well-known bops as well as music from Seattle musicians. Emphasis is on details, texture, and performance. Lex creates a supportive space to explore your passion for dance- whether you are new to it, returning after a break, or want to get a nice workout! All experience levels and drop-ins welcome!
