Open Level Whacking

Sunset's Class Description: This class will explore arm movements & characterizations in a freestyle-oriented structure. The origins of whacking come from Punking which started in the gay club scene of Los Angeles in the 1970s disco era. In lieu of this club-style dance, the class will allow for dancers to explore how they move as individuals through posts and whacking techniques. Posing was the original element influences by silent films, while whacks and throws were inspired by action movies of the time.

Open Level: A great place to start if you’re interested in a new dance style or have never taken dance classes before. You will be taken through the basic elements of dance, step by step, so you will have a better understanding of the movement and eventually be ready for the next level of classes. This may include rhythm, counting, body isolations, placement, repetition of movements, applying foundational knowledge into dance combinations & common vocabulary.
