Since the beginning of the year, Groove Therapy has been helping Australians dance away their evenings. Whether you think you can bust or move or know for a fact that you can't, their relaxed, hour-long dance classes promise to unleash the aspiring street dancer in all of us — and have been doing just that in Sydney and Melbourne.
Queensland, now it's your turn. Bringing the concept up north, GT are teaming up with Universal to hold two hip hop dance class parties. Brisbane gets its chance for some shape-throwing fun on July 10 at the Latvian Hall in Woolloongabba, while Gold Coasters can get in on the action on July 3 at Southport Community Centre. And like their other efforts, there's no pressure, no recitals and — most importantly — no mirrors.
Indeed, the workshops are designed for beginner students who might feel intimidated by a more professional environment. Don't let that fool you though, because the instructors are legit, and will have you popping and locking in no time. It's perfect for those of us who dream of burning up the dance floor, but have never had the moves to back it up.
