Yanna's class is applicable to all levels of dancers (Scroll down to poster for more info or left click on The Dance Connection in the side bar). Also being offered is Beginning Hustle. The Hustle can be danced at nightclubs and discos, as well as at the Palladium and dance studios because a lot of current and past hit songs such as Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars has a Hustle beat.
