This is Soca!

From Trinidad to dance 101 Atlanta, Soca has arrived! Not for the faint of heart, this new genre of music and dance is the newest incarnation of calypso (Soca comes from "soul of calypso") and is the soundtrack to Trinidad's Grand Carnival which erupts in the streets of Port of Spain every year in February. With an infectious sound and joyful movement, Soca is quickly gaining international attention.

You probably have heard about it, maybe even seen it danced and now here's your chance to experience it! "WUK Up" and "Whine" to the sounds of Soca icons Lord Shorty and Machel Montano and for an hour you will feel transported to the Caribbean. Had a tough week? Need a smile? With the perfect blend of choreography and exoticism, this class is some serious fun. Taught by Chantal "Woman on a Soca Mission" Maurice.
