Something Magical Happens on the Dance Floor

I have nothing but heaps of praise for Wendi Baity’s hip hop class on Monday nights at Moorpark College! This class has been such a great experience for me as both a dancer and as a social experience. Having done mostly partnered dancing for the last six years, this class was a definite stretch for me. I am very grateful for the spirit that Wendi brought to this class. She has been an incredible inspiration for me, not just with hip hop, but with all styles of dance.

Wendi infuses this energy into her class that became so abundantly clear at the end of the semester dance performance this evening. The monday night class is packed with students from all walks of life. Everyone in that class has an amazing story to tell. They are all great people.

When we all hit the stage, something magical happened. Wendi had been asking for more energy throughout the entire semester. All that energy came onto that stage tonight. It seemed like everyone just lit up on the stage! It was an awesome experience to see and also to be part of. I’m looking forward to the funny 80s piece in tomorrow’s dance performance.
