Take a class at UGA

Observations

On Thursday, October 22, I went to the Ramsey Center to find the breakdancing group to photograph for this week’s post. However, I couldn’t find the group and stumbled onto this hip hop class instead. Headed up by Christina Figueroa, who teaches beginner and advanced hip hop classes, the class was doing a review week for the dance they learned last week. Where did Figueroa take some of the choreography from? You guessed it – So You Think You Can Dance.

This advanced class, which usually features eight students each week, pulled in four this week for the review session. They danced to “Party People” by Nelly.

Students can sign up for these classes at the Ramsey Center, which also holds jazz, ballet and zumba classes.
