Hip Hop Class! August 29th

Thursday afternoon we had the incredible Mina Sangsari come and take us for a Hip Hop lesson! Her classes are always high energy and consist of a combination of hip hop, funk and Caribbean styles.

IMG_5796

We got straight into a fast paced warm up, with plenty of stretching and jumping.

Then we began learning a hip hop routine. We practiced to a nice slow tune to start with, before trying it out to a really fast beat.

You can catch Mina the Beach Hotel on Monday’s for Reggae Night, where she performs with her dance crew. She also has regular workshops and classes at the Circus Arts School for those who love to dance. Keep an eye on the Lexis Facebook page or come and see me for more information.

We are all ready looking forward to having her back next month for another great class 😀
