Get ready to dig, deep!

Free and open to all students, faculty, staff.  

The Essence Experience is curated to improve not only the students’ technique but also, find the ways that best suit them to express Waacking while keeping in mind its cultural and social background.  The EE gears the students to find their essence, improve their freestyle, reconnect with their power, and help them become stronger dancers, and better Waackers. Expressing truthfully is always the goal in the EE course.
