Freestyle Dance with Elizabeth! October 4th

Friday afternoon’s activity was a Freestyle Dance class with Elizabeth. 😀

We only had a small group, but we made up for it with huge amounts of energy.

Elizabeth played a range of different dance music and with each track she encouraged us to feel the music and move our body in time with the beat. It was so much fun and a real work out!

The perfect Friday afternoon activity before a long weekend 😀 Thank you Elizabeth. Make sure you come along and join the fun next time! I guarantee you will be surprised at how good you feel after having a boogie!

Hip Hop Dance Class! July 10th

Yesterday afternoon we had the wonderful Mina from Sydney come in and take us for a hip-hop dance lesson.

We started off with a warm up and then Mina taught us some classic hip hop tricks and moves.

She broke down the moves to make it easy for us to follow. We did ‘The Running Man’, ‘The Cabbage Patch’ and some fancy criss-cross footwork.

 

 

We also learnt a short routine using a lot of the moves we had practiced in the warm up.

 

It was a great afternoon. I am all ready looking forward to Mina coming back next month. Keep an eye on the August activity calendar to see when our next lesson is 🙂

Salsa & Sangria! May 17th

Friday afternoon we strapped on our dancing shoes and got funky for Salsa & Sangria with Danni from Sassy Salsa.

We started off with a warm up to get us into the swing of it…

And then we got straight into learning a short ‘reggaeton’ routine…

Which then quickly escalated into an epic group dance circle…

Now everyone was well and truly warmed up and ready to enjoy some sangria! I made the sangria following a simple recipe of red wine, orange juice, a table spoon of maple syrup and diced apple, strawberries, orange and lemon.

Our lesson continued learning some salsa moves and practiced with a partner.

Thank you everyone for such a fun afternoon! I am already looking forward to our next dance lesson. 🙂

Flamenco Dancing with Alba!!!

 

Last night we had so much fun Flamenco dancing with our amazing dance teacher Alba! Everyone got involved shaking their hips, clapping their hands and kicking their feet!

Flamenco dancing is a very popular dance throughout Spain and it reflects a lot of Spanish culture. We feel very luck to have Alba at Lexis sharing with us a part of her home culture and important steps to a basic Flamenco routine.

By the end of the hour we all looked semi professional and had big smiles on our faces!!

We hope to see Alba again so we can continue to practice our moves and shake our hips to some great Spanish music!
