1. Where do you teach?
I do workshops and residencies as the excitement and opportunity comes about, unfortunately I do not teach regularly. When I do I'll usually post them them here and send out a mailing list, to which you should subscribe (scroll down side bar right) if you want to be in the loop. I also throw and attend parties or events that feature DJs and the music I play. I also just started an FB page where I aim to share more of these workshops, events, and music of the Afro-Urban scene.

2. What is Afro-Urban Dance?
Afro-Urban dance is dance, music, fashion and visuals originate from people of African descent in the continent and diaspora that exists in diverse settings such as at home, streets and clubs/parties.
3. What is this Music?
At various classes and workshops I talk about what songs/styles I'm sharing. In general, the list of what I consider Afro-Urban is pretty endless and global. Usually the sounds you're hearing are from currently trending popular artists in the African music scene. The styles include but are not limited to Coupe Decale | Azonto | Dancehall | Soca | Naija | Kwaito | Ndombolo | Afrobeat | Afro-House | Hip Hop | & More
On Sep 4th these are the tracks that I played
