JERSEY CITY DANCE ACADEMY

Their mission is to nurture both the potential artist and the recreational dancer who studies only for the inherent rewards of self-discipline, confidence, physical fitness, and a greater appreciation of motion and music. Students are encouraged to discover dance and movement to understand themselves better. As students progress, they are challenged with the latest dance innovations and choreography while emphasizing technique, safe work habits, personal responsibility, and concentration at Jersey City Dance Academy.

CADENCIA DANCERS

Founded in 2009, the Cadencia Dancers (formerly Caña y Cadencia Flamenco) is a flamenco dance and music troupe bringing the art of flamenco to audiences to New York City and the Tri-State area. Started as a Tablao at Café Andalucia in Manhattan from 2010-2014, the Cadencia Dancers today perform in various settings, including cultural festivals, cafes, art openings, and street performances.

AFRICAN FUSION DANCE

West African dance traditionally pulls movements from everyday life of chores, work, and imitating animals.  African dance uses all these types of gestures to tell a story or to celebrate life. This dance performance is a mixture of traditional West African, West Indian, and Afrobeat dance moves. It is a total body workout, the best cardio you will ever have.
