Maya Sheridan is a driving force behind the Dancehall scene in Sydney. One

of the earliest champions of the dance style, Maya has helped to foster the

growth and popularity of Dancehall dance and movement in Sydney and

Australia since the mid 1990’s. Maya toured with Dance Master Kofi Walker

from Jamaica to feature as principal dancer of his company & The Afro

Caribbean Dance Theatre, touring Australia performing and holding Master

Classes in Dance Schools and Universities. Maya went on to study under and

work with other well known influences of global and black dance throughout

her career such as Paul Saliba, Shirley Sweeney, Naisda, QLD Folkloric

Dance Association and Bangarra Dance Theatre. 

In this 1 hour class you will learn dancehall moves all done to the amazing rhythms out of Jamaica, very energetic and athletic but also low and grounded at the same time.

Our beginner/open class provides students with new and exciting way to dance , move and shake the body that all ages can enjoy.

Warm-up , isolations , how to twerk , whining and basic steps. Then you will learn a booty shaking routine that incoporates all the steps!

We encourage all levels and ages of dancers to attend :) get your friends together and be prepared to have lots of fun !
