Partnered Street Styles
At Shades we often dance to hip-hop or hip-hop influenced music. Come learn some street styles from international visiting instructor Fayzah. She’ll teach you solo movements and guide you into using them in your partner dancing. As a professional dancer in argentine tango and several solo forms (tribal fusion belly dance, street styles and many others), Fayzah brings a unique perspective to partnering street styles. You won’t want to miss this class!

What

Every Monday night in the Mission, from 9:00-12:00, come have fun and dance with your friends to blues music and beyond. Check out our drop-in lessons at 8:00 (No partner or experience needed). Sliding Scales: $12-$16 lesson plus dance, $6-$10 dance only.

We love variety, so we partner dance to many styles of music, exploring different styles of movement to go with it. To blues music we dance blues dances. To other music we branch out and explore AltDancing, or find inspiration from other dance forms.
