All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. In this class you will sweat out your stress with fun, hip hop moves. You’ll use dance to strengthen your body all while having lots of fun!

2. Place your hands on the edge of your desk, a little wider than shoulder distance apart.

3. Slowly (count to 4) lower your body down to the edge of your desk.
