Good Day NY's Christal Young tries a variety of dance classes offered at the Ailey Extension, including Horton, Hip-Hop, African and Vogue.
Students will learn the fundamentals of vogue dancing, classic runway as well as current trends in runway modeling and voguing with special attention paid to its rich history.
Each class will begin with a contemporary jazz warm-up, targeting core muscle strength, grace, clean lines, balance and control. Students will learn how to incorporate graceful hand and body movements with Egyptian-like popping, dipping and spinning.
For the ladies: posture, elegance and overall feminine presentation. The ultimate goal is to gain strength and develop confidence on and off the dance floor. Students are encouraged to bring high heels, but not mandatory.
