Videodance:Beyonce | Wed. at the BCS

If you loved Beyoncé at the 2011 Video Music Awards, and if you want to have fun learning the choreography of Beyoncé’s Run the World (Girls), then you won’t want to miss Videodance: Beyoncé!

Every Wednesday from 7:15 – 8:30, instructor Kody Jauron will offer a few weeks of choreography focusing on one song of one artist; artists such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears.

Each class will start with a short warm-up and then move into a fun and fast-paced class learning choreography from the latest and hottest music video hits. Attend once or come every week. Videodance is open to all levels.
