FreeDance is an important part of the Nia experience, yet a number of students express trepidation about it. But what if it was about dancing your way, and nothing else? What if someone gave you the invitation to let loose and get down?
This is the concept of Universal Dance, a two-hour party inspired by FreeDance. For our first Universal Dance party, we're channeling the spirit of "Soul Train," the legendary series created by Don Cornelius and featuring some of the most creative movers on television.
Universal Dance: Soul Train takes place on Saturday, April 20 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Drop in is $20, or admittance is included with your 5 Class Pass or Unlimited Membership. Sorry, our 3 for $30 offer is not eligible for this event.
No TV series celebrated the joy of music, movement and the magic created when the two come together as beautifully as this American dance and R&B music institution. It aired for 35 years and was a weekend viewing staple in countless household across America.
If you were a kid between 1971 and 2006, you may have at least heard of "Soul Train." But even if you didn't, you're probably familiar with some of the artists the show has featured over the years, including Al Green, Earth Wind &Fire, James Brown and many others.
And if you haven't, don't worry -- this is a terrific way to dance and feel the joy of their music in a welcoming, alcohol-free setting, among friends.
