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.

$10 per class for all 8 classes purchased in advance

$12 per class for any 4 classes purchased in advance

$15 per class for single class purchased in advance or drop-in

No one turned away for lack of funds.

Reconnecting displaced Africans in the diaspora through the science of traditional African dance. Our African ancestors left a rich legacy and culture, that through 1000s of years of deprogramming has been lost. Our stories have been preserved through song, art, poetry, and dance. DNA Dance Tribe’s study agenda is designed to reconnect us to this rich cultural history.
