Shaker's professional-dancer founders Tracey and Jonathan Webb employ a team of experienced instructors to inculcate your body's fancy-free bases with awe-inspiring moves. Once dancers have been divided into groups for ages 6 to 8 and those 9 to adult—with levels appropriate for beginners and beginning-to-advanced students—students learn to express themselves by hopping hiply, slipping into grooves that stretch limbs, strengthen muscles, and rattle the bass on cardio boom boxes. Lads longing for a go-to dance move more masculine than giggling coquettishly behind lace fans can find one during Shaker's Boys Beginner & Advanced Hip Hop class. Appropriate attire includes jazz shoes, black leotard or T-shirt, and black jazz pants or shorts.
