Urban Fusion is a blend of Modern/ Contemporary and Urban Dance Styles. Class begins with a body warm-up incorporating modern/contemporary, funk, street, b-boy/b-girl, and house elements to stretch and tone the body. Class will then transition to across the floor and/or center combination which will ask the dancer to find their relationship to musicality, athleticism, dynamics, and articulation of the body. Dancers are asked to find connections to what may appear to be completely different styles of movement throughout the class and find ways that these styles can be seamlessly molded together.
