TV and recording-artist choreographer Luam will be teaching her style of hip-hop infused with African dance and street jazz this Sunday at Joy of Motion Dance Center, Friendship Heights, 5207 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.
The October 10 class will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and is for students of low-intermediate to advanced levels. In her master classes, Luam encourages her students to “pair their inner grooves with precision and emotion,” while exploring the rhythms and lyrics of the music.
Luam has choreographed for MTV’s “Hip-Hop Week,” As the World Turns, and Mastercard commercials, and has worked with Ciara, Mashonda, Nelly Furtado, Fergie, Busta Rhymes, Rihanna, and other recording artists. As a dancer, she performed with Ludacris, Kelis, Kanye West, Kevin Lyttle, and Ashanti, and she choreographed world tours for Taiwanese and Chinese platinum recording artists Amei, Elva, and Show.
The class costs $40 with advance registration and $50 the day of the event. To register in advance, visit www.joyofmotion.org.
