Here's a bit more information about some of the classes:

*Afro-Cuban*: Relatively obscure in the United States due to the infamous
Cuban embargo, Afro-Cuban Modern dance or "Tecnica Cubana" is a unique
blend of North American modern technique (Duncan, Graham, Limón) and
European ballet (Ballet Alicia Alonso) with social and sacred Afro-Cuban
traditions. The class will start with a warm-up focused on contraction and
release techniques and undulation exercises, followed by across-the-floor
and choreographed combinations.

This class focuses on mastering the control and isolation of particular
muscles in the body, allowing students to take command of their body
movements. It will also help students build confidence and develop a new
avenue for self-expression, in addition to improving strength, flexibility,
and technique. All classes have live music accompaniment.

*West African Fusion: *This class is steeped in West African movement and
music featuring Afrobeat and highlife styles. Focus is on musicality,
choreography, technique, fluidity and rhythmic isolations.
