Join us for weekly dance classes!
We hold weekly West African dance fitness classes on Sundays at the Channing-Murray Foundation in Urbana from 6-7:30pm. Classes are just $5 and children and senior citizens always participate for free!
Classes are open to people of all fitness levels, ages and experience. Classes begin with a warm-up, followed by work on specific techniques and movement set to different West African rhythms, and end with a lively community circle.
Most people choose to dance barefoot, but you can wear athletic shoes if that is more comfortable. Otherwise wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring plenty of water.
