Our indoor class begins with meet and greet, then flows into a stretch session with music. After warm up, the instructor will begin the class with foundation movements and share the history or story behind the dance. As the class progresses, students will learn a series of movements and rhythms, stringing them together for a full dance. Class will include across the floor movement, music, sweat and love. Some classes include live drumming (LD).

I visited NY for my birthday and found this class. I had not done anything like this before but this experience left me wanting more. Careitha was nothing short of amazing! She was very passionate about the content and made sure to customize the class experience. I wish we had something like this where I live but since we don't, I will definitely visit this class the next time I'm in the city!

I took a Soca class. I had no idea what this was as I had originally signed up for an African dance class at 6 pm. When I arrived, they informed me that the African dance class was at 7:30 and not 6 pm. I could have waited for 7:30, but wanted to get back to Queens before it got too late. So I decided to try the Soca after asking the classmates about the music used for Soca. To my surprise, Soca was what I was hoping for. I ABSOLUTELY loved the class. The classmates where super friendly and made me feel welcomed. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to experience Soca!

Cumbe was affordable but I will say that out of all of my Airbnb experiences this was the one that I did not enjoy at all. When I signed up I was told that beginners would fit in easy. Not so. The instructor was very good at his craft but he thought that we knew the steps and choreography. I have never been exposed to African dance! The other participants were regular students who you can tell attended often. We felt embarrassed. Left the class actually feeling like what just happened. I think that the host should prepare someone who is looking to participate in this activity of what the class entails.

J’ai vraiment beaucoup aimé ce cours. Le professeur de danse était patient et prenait le temps pour les élèves qui avaient un peu plus de mal (j’en faisais partie). Un seul groupe de danse avec différent niveau, mais les pas étaient expliqués un à un. J’ai adoré l’ambiance pendant tout le cours : de l’échauffement jusqu’à la fin. On avait de tous les âges. J’ai pris le cours de danse de l’Afrique de l’Ouest le mardi à 18:30 La salle de danse se trouve à Brookling au 3ème étage d’un immeuble. La cage d’escalier est très jolie avec un dessin d’artiste par étage. Bref n’hésitez pas foncez, d’autant que le cours se trouve à moins de 10min à pied du métro. C’est une autre façon de découvrir brookling, sa vie et ses habitants. J’ai adoré et j’y retournerai ;)

Awesome experience. Exceeded our expectations. Will definitely attend more classes whenever we are in town. My daughter is a great dancer, but I’m the polar opposite of that, and I still had a great time, learned a lot, and felt included.
