Bollywood Beats
Ever wanted to dance like a Bollywood movie star? Join this beginner Bollywood dance class and learn how! Referred to the genre of dance emanating from the Hindi cinema industry, Bollywood dancing is a fusion of traditional South Asian dances like Bhangra with Hip Hop as well as Latin and Arab influences. In this Bollywood dance class you will learn basics and choreography to popular Bollywood movie songs. You will also learn to feel the music and rhythm of the Bollywood beat. Get ready to groove ‘Jai Ho’ style!

Hip Hop Level 1
Hip hop is a dance style that is more than 30 years old, and has its origins in breaking, popping, and locking. But through the evolution of hip hop music, the dance form also changed- today some of the most popular fad moves are found in mainstream hip hop and rap videos. The Hip Hop Level 1 class is designed to loosen up your body, gain more coordination, and find your personal groove. Through a series of 9 classes, we will break down some of the most popular dances to the latest music. This is a great way to stay fit, have fun, and impress your friends at parties or nightclubs. Appropriate for all dance and fitness levels.

Jazzy Bootcamp
Jazzy Bootcamp is an upbeat fitness class that combine Jazz, Salsa, Hip Hop, House and African dance styles as well as Pilates and strength training in a dynamic dance party combination. The class is designed to improve cardiovascular fitness, increase strength and flexibility while maximizing calories burned! Appropriate for all dance and fitness levels.

MTV Video Star
Ever wish you could dance like Beyonce, Madonna or Janet Jackson? Well now you can! Join Tracie in this new class at TDS where she will teach you routines from some of the hottest dance music videos. Choreographies will be built-up each week in this 9-week course: dance moves will be added each week to build a full routine; time will be given to perfect and perform the steps just like in the video, right down to the rockstar attitude! This semester will feature the choreographies from Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ and Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’.

Pilates
Pilates classes are designed to build strength and increase flexibility. The course focuses on integrating the entire body using your own body weight and gravity promoting ease and efficiency of movement. Pilates classes will improve core control, coordination, standing alignment and balance while building strong, sculpted muscles. Floor may required. Appropriate for all dance and fitness levels.

Brazillian Samba
Samba, the national dance of Brazil, is perhaps one of the most energetic and exhilarating South American dances! Learn the basics of Samba no pe, the style of samba most associated with Rio de Janeiro’s carnival. This class is suitable for female dancers with no experience with Brazilian samba, or those wanting to further develop their basic samba footwork, body movement, rhythm and styling. Improve coordination, core and leg strength and learn a fun, new (and easy) Brazilian samba routine. Join Tracie to dance and sweat to some of the most fun music on the planet! No prior dance experience necessary. This is a solo female dance class, no partners necessary and material will be new. Please note that this class will be conducted in bare feet.

Reggaeton Funk Dance Class
Ever get seized with the overwhelming desire to flee the dance floor when Reggaeton comes on at the club? Well, flee no more! Learn how to get your funk on with this fun new dance class that blends the grooves of hip hop, funk and Jamaican dancehall. In this non-partnering dance class for both men and women, Tracie will focus on rhythm, body isolations, execution, styling and coordination. Once you’re done with this course you’ll have no reason to sit out the reggaeton music sets at the club!

Belly Dance Bootcamp
I This fun exciting Belly Dance class is open to all ages and levels of dance and fitness. We will be strengthening our core, arms and legs for proper execution of Belly Dance technique.
