As part of the Program in Dance’s fall 2021 co-curricular dance offerings, Cebo Carr leads a class on House. Cebo will introduce the time and circumstances that created what is known in the movement world as House dance, along with providing starting points to help you on your path of finding yourself in House dance culture through listening to music, feeling the music, and dancing to the music.

This class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the class exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the sessions, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation. The series is curated by Princeton dance alum Lauren Auyeung ’19 and taught by Auyeung and guests. All experience levels welcome.
