We just had our first “So You Think You Can Dance Wednesdays” at Six Degrees Nightclub. And I’m so excited about the future of this event
It was a smaller Toronto crowd at the uber-cool night spot, but that didn’t stop a thing. Hey, more free drinks for us!
The club had breakdance and bboy footage playing on the jumbo video screen all night long. Sweet. I taught a super fun beginner hip hop dance class. Awesome. DJ Craig Nice then spun wicked hip hop, r&b, house and other club bangers, makin’ sure we had wet clothes by the end of the night. Fun times!
What an awesome view I had from the stage, seeing the entire dance floor filled with people enjoying a hip hop class. A whole club where everyone loves dance. Toronto doesn’t have much happening on Wednesday nights, but this will for sure be the spot for people who want to socialize, let loose, throw down hard, or simply learn to dance.
And some of my hip hop class students came out to support. Thanks gang! This is an event I hope to last a very long time. Like, come on- where else can you go and throw down hard, and take a dance class without feeling intimidated? And it’s ok to be gross and sweaty?
So You Think You Can Dance Wednesdays, that’s where! :-) I’m still buzzing from the love. Plus, THE Chris James, video director and film wiz extrodinairre, brought his video equipment and took some video footage. I’ll get that up soon.
If you came out, what did you think?
