Free to all students, faculty, and staff.

House Like a Nubian is a house dance class based on learning and understanding the basic and foundational steps, providing a practice to improve one’s house dance technique, with a focus on freestyling, playing with variations and physicality, as well as sharing music, and stories of this Black underground club culture. This is an all-level class, no choreography will be taught, and come prepared to work, sweat, and house dance. 

Nubian Néné weaves her own style, shaped by street and club dances she’s practiced for over 20 years. A choreographer, dancer, teacher, visual artist, and event producer with Haitian roots, she's been mentored by Street/Club dance elders who have cultivated her commitment to cultural awareness and community engagement.
