Be honest with yourself, you might not like films like Step Up, Dirty Dancing or Save The Last Dance, but who doesn't want to move with the finesse of the main characters? To amaze all your friends at the Christmas party with your pop'n'lock? To clear the dancefloor at Cookie, and not just because you had a pre-game kebab.
You could buy one of those DVD's that teach you how to move, but who can really be bothered to get up off the sofa and do them. Besides, who wants to risk having the bloke down the road spying you with your lycra on, failing to achieve a high kick?
Instead, aspiring Nottingham dancers, or those that just want some fun, should hang one over to Nottingham Dance Studios, who are hosting a dance day with NuProjeks this Saturday from nine in the morning. You can learn waacking, krumping and zumba choreographers and instructors around, including UK popping Finalist Frankie J, and queen Vogue-er Gemma Sanchez.
Dip in and out of the classes you want to take – a full dance day pass is £25, but prices start from as little as £5 per class, allowing you to wander off if you vogue a little too heartily. All money raised is going to danceaid, a new charity that supports needy and sick kids in the UK, Asia and Africa through education, counselling and housing.
The day will finish off with a huge freestyle, for everyone to show off their new moves, or revert to dancing like their dads. Regardless, there’ll be enough amazing body poppers and breakers to make even the most awesome movie scene look like a bunch of grannies bopping around a handbag.
Dance Day will be at Nottingham Dance Studios from 9am Saturday 6th October.
