Think: Katy Perry, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, Niki Minaj, Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears…you get the idea.
They’ve made waves on the pop scene, now we’ll rock out to some of their greatest hits. Join an all-star duo of Philly Dance Fitness instructors — Michelle and Lee-Ann — for 90 minutes of nonstop hip-shaking, body-rolling, chest-popping cardio dance routines.
With so many divas on the music scene in the past few decades, our challenge will be picking out the best hits to feature in our limited time. But you can bet that you’ll dance to songs from at least half of the artists mentioned above.
The workshop will include a mix of follow-the-leader routines and longer combinations. Don’t worry if you’re rusty on your hand flicks and diva struts — we’ll break down the more complex choreography so that everyone can master it.
The footwork and pace of the instruction will be geared toward a teen and adult audience, but no prior dance experience is necessary. Come prepared to sweat in comfortable clothing and dance shoes or sneakers. We also recommend bringing a bottle of water. Oh, and singing along is highly encouraged.
To whet your appetite, here’s arguably one of the most iconic diva videos of all time — Madonna’s “Vogue”
