Unleash Your Inner Fierce
By Dria Fair
As you enter the dance studio on 5965 North Clark Street, you are greeted by soulful lyrics and the funky, upbeat tempo of House music. If you are familiar with the dance style of Joel Hall, you would know that House music is a heavy influence on his jazz technique, and that he regularly teaches his classes with it. When you glance into the front studio, you see the dancers maneuvering difficult battement and allegro combinations opposed to pencil turns and hippy jazz movement.
