Get Filthy: JT Hip-Hop Workshop

Funky. Saucy. Filthy.

We’ll be feeling all these vibes in our March workshop dedicated to a master beat-boxer, singer and dancer who’s been dropping hits since he first stole teenage girls’ hearts as a curly-haired crooner in a ’90s boy band.

Yes, Justin Timberlake, what you lack in muscle you make up for in music, captivating fans with your falsetto range, smooth lyrics and driving beats. And since those beats just make us want to dance, and since JT happened to drop a new album right before headlining the Superbowl halftime show this February (where the Eagles took a glorious win!!!), we thought it was a perfect time to celebrate him.

Join Maya, Ricky and Deborah for 90 minutes of smooth hip-hop inspired by Timberlake’s lexicon of moves. Think slides, shoulder shrugs, spins, finger points…you get the idea if you’ve seen any of his music videos.

With more than two decades of music to choose from, our biggest challenge will be fitting in as many of the best songs as we can – especially since we have to reserve a teeny bit of time to give a nod to JT’s ’90s roots with a little N’SYNC throwback. From “Bye Bye Bye” to “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” expect a hot mix of past and present hits. And of course, we’ve got some brand new choreography to our favorites from his new “Man of the Woods” album: “Filthy,” “Sauce” and more.

Don’t sweat it if you think you can’t dance like JT – we’ve put together routines that anyone can follow and we’ll break down the steps for the more complex combinations. Ages 13 and up. Space is limited to make sure everyone has room to dance. So if you’re ready to “Rock Your Body” and “Let the Groove Get In,” sign up now because this workshop just might sell out!

To whet your appetite, here’s the first music video released from JT’s newest album:
