Check out the newest hip hop dance class this August

Here is one of those “specials” that I let my subscribers and friends in on every once in a while.

As you probably remember, I mentioned in my last Free Newsletter that I’ll be offereing a fun series of unique, one-day dance workshops.

So far, we’ve had some awesome Adult hip hop dance classes. And, we had a spicy sample of Street Sexxy hip hop classes for the ladies.

If you missed out, here’s a few sweaty pics:

Check out the sweat, we gettin’ some good exercise! Last Saturday we danced to some MIMS in the beginner class, and Justin Timberlake after. Amazing work everyone. That was why we’re hot… =)

Ok, back to what I was talking about earlier.

Now get this: On Saturday August 11th, the next in the series of dance classes will be… [Drum roll please]

…a two hour, hip hop dance workshop for “ballerinas” and “bun-heads!” This two hour workshop will start at 4 pm that Saturday afternoon.

Why am I doing this?

Because I realize we all learn differently. We all have different dance backgrounds, training and abilities. We all have habits that were embedded in us from an early age. And as they say… old habits die hard.

So that’s why I’ve created this class: to help those of us who are “hip hop challenged” because of our inability to “let go” of our previous jazz and ballet training.

You know who I’m talkin’ about. Those who can’t ever relax, and have problems getting low. Or those who just can’t seem to hunch over because their spine and butt muscles are permanently engaged.

And, for those of you who are clearly missing the “funky” gene in your DNA. Know anyone that fits the bill?

Do YOU fit the description?

After thinking long and hard for a really cool name for this class, I’ve finally decided to call it:

“Hip Hop For Ballerinas And Bunheads.”

That way, there’s no confusion as to what the class is about!

I’d like to tell you more about my future plans for this class in particular… but only in person when you attend. The news is actually quite exciting, and I think you’ll agree how beneficial our upcoming plans can be for you, and so many others in the city.

Up until now, there hasn’t been a hip hop class that completely addressed the needs of jazzarinas (aka jazz bunnies). Sure, you’re flexible, agile, and can do pirouettes better than anyone else… but you have difficulty with the funky factor.

Having a jazz and ballet background myself (YES, I was also trained in jazz dance and ballet… you learn something new every day don’t you?), I’m able to personally help you through this difficult time. There is hope!

But only if you follow these 3 steps:

1.) TELL A FRIEND today about this class. Call them. Show them this info, and decide to join in the fun Saturday August 11th, at 4 pm.

2.) REGISTER for this class. On TUESDAY AUGUST 7th, I’ll be opening registration for ALL August classes. You must register in advance. Make sure to read August’s Free Newsletter coming your way later this week, all the info will be there for you.

3.) SHOW UP to class. But WITHOUT your legwarmers and jazz shoes. Hip hop people! HIP HOP. Dressing the part will help you look and feel the part. No high ponytails either. =(

Now listen to this very carefully: As I mentioned above, your August Newsletter will have all the info, so READ it when it shows up in your email later this week.

Lastly, if you’re a bunhead or jazzarina, you owe it to yourself to check out what this workshop has to offer you. Don’t sleep on this, because there’s only ONE workshop.

If you’re looking for a chance to finally get down, WITHOUT looking like a fish outta water… you need to get in this workshop.

Spread the news today, and don’t miss registration next Tuesday!

  1. Shawn!!!

    I miss dancing with you! I hope you have some classes this fall that fit my schedule!

    Afternoons? Evenings? Will you be teaching? I hope soooo! Good luck finding a studio….if I see/think of anything I’ll let you know.


  2. It’s August 24, and not having received the customary personal call from Shawn requesting my attendance, I missed the class. So, the burning question on my mind is, “Why won’t he call me?”, and the next-most-burningest-question is, “When’s the next class?”

  3. Looking forward to the two hours on the 11th. Count me in Shawan…I’m a jazzarina…see you then. Was I bad reader or did you mention cost?


    P.S. All participants did look hot! Well done ya’ll…

  4. Hey Shawn!

    Thank you so much for thinking of this! I just graduated from the National Ballet School, and I’d really like to learn hip hop. I took your brother’s class last Saturday and look forward to meeting you,

    All the best,
