Students Dancers Learn Hip-Hop Basics
During One-Day Master Class

This is a class for students and employees of the university, but media are invited to see how, using elements of jazz and other traditional dance, hip-hop is taught.

WHO: Professional dancer Quami Adams and the California State University, Dominguez Hills dance program.

Adams has danced in the touring production of “Stomp” and for such notable entertainers as Quincy Jones, Christina Aguilera and tap dancer/choreographer Savion Glover. A part-time dance instructor at El Camino College in Torrance, Adams also choreographs many of that college’s dance concerts. He currently resides in Hawthorne.

WHAT: Hip-Hop master class

WHEN: TODAY -- Wednesday, October 24, 5:30-7 p.m.

WHERE: CSUDH Gymnasium, Room A-102. www.csudh.edu/site/visitus/maps.asp.

WHY: The CSUDH Dance Program is transitioning to become a major course of study at the university. Currently it is only offered as a minor. The master class provides students with a more diverse offering and, by inviting professional dancers to work with students, aims to raise the profile of the dance program.
