Urban Movement Arts - Intro to House

Urban Movement Arts

2100 Chestnut 2nd Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19103

This vibrant dance style, a close relative to hip hop, was born out of the music revolution in Chicago during the post-disco era, giving birth to house music. House very quickly made its way into New York clubs and naturally down to Philly, where it has taken unique form. If you enjoy the idea of grooving to an up tempo beat, then you have to try house dance. The style is mostly known for its unique version of stylish and fancy footwork. Also it deliberately takes influence from jazz, Latin, African, funk and hip hop. It’s a great aerobic workout: if you enjoy going on a run or maybe even soccer, then you’ll enjoy house. We will teach you the foundation and basics in a fun and easy way. But before you know it, you’ll be asking us when you can join us in the clubs.
