Our first Bootylicious Beyonce Hip-Hop workshop sold out, so we worked a little scheduling magic to bring you an encore just before the rockstar’s July performance in Philadelphia.
So, if you missed the first one, don’t wait to get your ticket this time. Meanwhile, we’ll be polishing up our choreography so that we can dance even harder the second time around.
Here’s the detailed description of what to expect:
It’s about to get crazy and maybe even a little naughty at our July 14 encore workshop spotlighting the one and only Beyonce Knowles.
Join all-star trio Angela, Maya and Deborah for 90 minutes of nonstop hip rolling, booty shaking, chest pumping, heart thumping hip-hop. We don’t even pretend to be nearly as bootylicious as the real Destiny’s Child, but we’ll do our best to teach you some of their trademark moves.
The workshop begins with follow-the-leader routines set to D.C. and Beyonce hits past and present, including “Independent Women,” “Beautiful Liar,” and “End of Time.” After warming up, you’ll learn a few longer combinations, including “Love on Top,” “Get Me Bodied,” and a modified version of Beyonce’s own steamy moves in “Dance For You.”
Don’t worry if you’re rusty on your body rolls — we’ll break down the more complex choreography so that everyone can master it. Singing along is fine – as long as you sound as good as Beyonce. (Kidding!)
Ages 13 and up. Space is limited to make sure everyone has room to dance. So if you think you’re ready for this jelly, get your tickets now!
To whet your appetite, here’s one of our favorite Beyonce videos: Single Ladies! (And yes, you will be dancing to this, too!)
