February 15: UAI Dance Workshop
Thursday, February 15 | 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Join us for a fun, beginner-friendly dance workshop event in Van Vilet Centre (VVC) on campus! This workshop will focus on freestyle fundamentals like understanding rhythm, grooves, and textures. The dance instructor, our wonderful program assistant Thando, will teach the fundamentals by leading a stretch and playing dance mini-games. We would like to incorporate some of YOUR music taste into the class, so there is a section in the Google Form where you can submit 1 - 2 songs!

Come and meet other students and learn how to get more comfortable with social dancing (i.e. dancing at a party or event). This event requires you to sign a waiver.
No experience is necessary to join, we welcome ALL SKILL LEVELS! Just be ready to make new friends and have tons of fun!!

Just be ready to make new friends and have fun!!
