She fell in love with pole dancing because it can be powerful, beautiful and artistic all at the same time.

  • 🇯🇲 DANCEHALL CLASSES MANCHESTER 🇯🇲 If you’re looking for a FUN and innovative class to take, then we encourage you to stop by and check out our DANCEHALL class! Officially it is said that dancehall is a street dance, which is based on the achievements of Jamaican social-dancers. The most important and the most striking thing is the rhythmic movement of the hips and torso. This style of dance has a lot to do with the group dances hip-hop, where the most important thing is the rhythm. Dancehall is obviously not only about shaking body but also a series of jumps. Not everyone can be a really good dancer of this style because it needs the natural suppleness of body and flexibility of widely understood. In further stages of advancement we even need to use acrobatics, which can make street dance more elaborate and truly admirable. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Wear something you feel comfortable with.
