GrooveMiami: a series of multi-style, group dance classes, condensed into one afternoon or evening

iCrowdNewswire - Aug 26, 2015

GrooveMiami

 

the project

GrooveMiami is a series of multi-style, group dance classes. GrooveMiami will repurpose underutilized public spaces to host multiple 15-minute micro-classes in styles including salsa, swing, line dancing, and disco yoga for a cool down. Over the course of one evening, you’ll have the chance to try 3 or 4 different styles. 

GrooveMiami will help people to come together and reap the health benefits of an hour to an hour and a half of moderate-intensity cardiovascular exercise. And, by targeting multiple public spaces across Miami-Dade ranging from the roof top of the Miami-Dade College parking garage downtown to Metrorail stops to public parks, GrooveMiami also hopes to broaden participants’ understanding of how and to what ends public space can be used.
