Back to basics is a dancehall moves intensive. We will scale back, start from the beginning, and practice straight up dancehall steps. No choreography, no modifications, no rhythm changes. The steps taught will be exactly how they were created (with a little Cali swag) by the crews of dancers in Jamaica. Everyone is welcome and no dancehall experience needed.

Week 1 - Foundational Dancehall - groove and flow
Week 2 - Stylish Moves Dancehall - Latonya Style, + Rebel
Week 3 - New School Dancehall - Black Eagles, Hectic Dymonds
Week 4 - Badman Dancehall - Rifical, Elite Team
