DANCEHALL: BEGINNERS & ADVANCED CLASSES

Officially it is said that dancehall is a street dance, which is based on the achievements of Jamaican social-dancers. The most important and the most striking thing is the rhythmic movement of the hips and torso. This style of dance has a lot to do with the group dances hip-hop, where the most important thing is the rhythm. Dancehall is obviously not only about shaking body but also a series of jumps. Not everyone can be a really good dancer of this style because it needs the natural suppleness of body and flexibility of widely understood. In further stages of advancement we even need to use acrobatics, which can make street dance more elaborate and truly admirable.

GFFDamian offers two levels:

Beginners for those who have no to little dance experience or just fancy trying something new.

Intermediate/Advanced for those who love a fast paced dance and upbeat energy, dance experience not required but will help.
