Urbanity Dance is proud to offer one of the only beginner/intermediate adult hip hop crews in Boston! This program is for our hip hop dancers who are looking to take their dancing to the next level and perform outside the Urbanity Community. In addition to the adult showcase, Prizmatic dancers will participate in one outside performance and gain exposure to the larger hip hop scene in Boston. Hip hop crew differs from our hip hop classes. In crew, dancers work strictly on choreography—we do not practice hip hop fundamentals and technique during rehearsals.
For those interested in Prizmatic, you are invited to participate in our free Trial/Placement Class on Sunday, September 8. Click here to RSVP!
Classes are both contemporary technique and performance focused. Classes incorporate yoga, cardio, strength training, and elements of ballet, modern, jazz, and improv dance techniques.

Free Flow Ballet with Flora Kim
Considered the foundational technique of all western performance dances, such as modern, jazz, and contemporary, ballet is one of the most iconic dance styles in the world. With it's emphasis on placement, carriage of the body, alignment, grace, suppleness, precision, and dexterity, ballet is the perfect class for a wide range of adult students looking to improve their coordination and flexibility. Urbanity's Free Flow class is unique in providing the best of a traditional ballet class with fun and engaging twists, such as free-standing warm ups (known as center barre) and an emphasis on expression and creativity.
Mondays | 7:45–9:00 p.m.
Jazz Funk with Juanita Pearl
Jazz funk is a cultural melting pot of everything from classical ballet to hip hop, where we combine a variety of old school moves and even some elements of Beyoncé's stage routines. When you combine them all, you have the fun and flashy jazz funk style, ready for you to master the moves and add your own personal touch! We warm up with stretches and cardio. Then we break down the foundation of the movement before we get into the choreography. All levels are welcome!

Brazilian Zouk with Jose Cuadra
Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance originating from Brazil. The dance is a descendant of lambada, the music & dance style that swept over the world like a storm in the late 1980's. Brazilian Zouk is characterized by the dancers’ undulating bodies and the girls' flowing hair. Depending on the style of Brazilian Zouk, you can see a close connection embrace and long graceful steps, strong hip movements, body isolations and upper-body torsions, wild spins and whip-like head movements. While the dance is often called sensual, it is not sexual or erotic. It is danced by people of all ages in night clubs, dance schools and events around the world!
Mondays | 7:30–8:45 p.m.
Zouk is run in two separate five-week sessions (Zouk I & Zouk II). These half-sessions are $115.
