Studio G Friday Night Sessions
All levels: 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm
This is not a class but a open practice session. It is often hard for local dancers to find a space where they can practice and spend time with other people who wish to hone their craft. Studio G provides a friendly spot where newcomers can meet local dancers and share skills. Music will feature various urban dance styles. On some nights, we will feature a DJ. Studio G is a resident group at DCDC. Newcomers to urban dance, we welcome you to visit and familiarize yourself with the styles and perhaps learn a technique or two while you are here!
