Groovement is focused on finding individual sense of groove and comfort within the container of a structured dance class that emphasizes rhythm, musicality, and authentic expression. Instead of drawing from a particular movement vocabulary, dana shares the movement that comes most naturally to her, a hybrid reinvention of the diverse influences of her dance background: ballet, jazz, hip-hop, modern, West African, tap, and—most influentially—club dancing. The eclectic soundtrack spans Afro/soulful house music, hip-hop and R&B, dancehall, jazz, and more. The goal of Groovement is to get liberated through movement rather than feel oppressed by how to dance “right,” and to create a protected space of community, acceptance, and joy among people of color.

People of color of all levels welcome; comfort with music and movement required. Sweats or other danceable clothes and sneakers suggested.
