ABOUT FEMME GONE WILD DANCEHALL

Femme Gone Wild Dancehall, created with the guidance and support of top Dancehall dancers in Jamaica, is a Vancouver-based dancehall program where females get aggressive!  We will explore the foundations of dancehall with an emphasis on the beauty of the bold, feisty and sexy side of dancehall through a combination of female and male grooves. 

Dancehall is a highly energetic, rhythmic style which originated in Jamaica and has Reggae roots. Learn the foundations of dancehall in this open-level dance program which is uptempo and empowering. Fall in love with the dancehall movements and infectious beats of the dancehall riddims.

Classes are conducted in a supportive and welcoming atmosphere, but you will also be pushed as a dancer.  Expect growth in terms of strength and vibrancy as a dancehall dancer.

Along with weekly dancehall training Femme Gone Wild hosts Dancehall training retreats in Jamaica creating a stronger link between Canada and Jamaica.  

Femme Gone Wild Dancehall does not personally profit financially from their programs/retreats: all profit returns to Jamaica and the dancers which mentor and inspire us.

 

Please email Kirbyrae@gmail.com if interested in applying to attend upcoming retreats.
