Named Most Prestigious Adult Female Dancer by Tennessee’s Destined to Dance awards, Amanda Gonzales leads Madison Dance Studio’s two weekly introductory hip-hop classes. In Hip Hop 101, upbeat R&B, house, pop, and club beats boom as dancers master basic hip-hop movements. Hip Hop with Heels helps bolster female hip-swayers’ confidence with heels-optional lessons that combine hip-hop steps with salsa moves, which can help unlock the turntable in your hips, blending flashy turns, twists, and spins into a whirling storm of devastating desire. In the exposed-brick embrace of the hardwood-floored studio, students opt to receive one-on-one attention during private lessons to further expand their arsenal of nightclub grooves.
Madison Dance Studio
In January 2012, Amanda Gonzales and Edgar Mendez—a former principal dancer and choreographer for the Los Rumberos dance company—founded Madison Dance Studio to share their love of rhythmic movement with all ages. The duo and their team of talented instructors lead classes, including salsa and hip-hop, atop of a wood floor illuminated by floating party lights. In addition to helming belly-dance sessions, they channel Latin-inspired dance moves and global party beats in Zumba fitness classes. Amanda encourages ladies to confidently express themselves on club dance floors during her signature Hip Hop in Heels class.
After all hips have been shimmied and snaked according to U.S. government standards, students and instructors can rest atop the cushy sectional sofa while admiring the sky-blue chevron murals, which add a modern vibe to the room's exposed brick.
