Dance Craze, an event designed to teach students popular dances, is one of VSU’s newest events.
The first session will be Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. in the group fitness room of the Student Recreational Center.
The event is geared toward contemporary rap, hip hop and R&B moves that are sweeping the nation including ‘the Wobble” and dance movements from pop star Beyoncé’s hit video “Single Ladies.”
Dance Craze is sponsored by Campus Recreation and was created by Mary Robison, fitness graduate assistant. According to Robison, she wanted the group fitness programs to have more of a diverse element.
She hopes to make this event happen every semester and to have more than 64 students attend. She also hopes to attract more people to group fitness classes.
Robison believes that Dance Craze is great to have because it provides students with an effective way to get in shape. To her, dancing is good for the body as it increases your heart rate and gets your blood pumping.
“It’s a fun way to work out!” she said. “You won’t even realize [that] you’re sweating!”
During the hour- long event, instructors will first break down the dances and then invite the attendees to imitate them.
There is no fee or registration process required to be a participant. Those that attend are asked to cover the butt, breast and stomach area.
Similar to Dance Craze, FitTease will be Oct. 8 to Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. specifically for women. It will highlight a burlesque style of dancing.
