Danny Golding, a former Broken Hillite and well known dancer, is back in the Silver City and hosting a night of casual dance classes.
Golding and his dancing talent have appeared on So You Think You Can Dance Australia, Australia’s Got Talent, Everybody Dance Now and Germany’s DAS Supertalent.
Danny returned to Broken Hill because his family still resides here.
“I was teaching and competing in pole dance until I injured myself, having completely ruptured my bicep tendon I was unable to work for a period of time,” he said.
“As a result I decided to come home where I could recover and take a much needed break.
“Since being back in Broken Hill my focus has been work, I knew eventually I would want to express my creativity and do something fun and teaching is an opportunity to do that whilst sharing something I love.”
Danny will be hosting two classes on the evening of Wednesday July 10. First being commercial jazz from 5pm to 6pm, for ages 12 and over. Following that will be a heel class for 16 years old and above, from 6pm to 7pm. People can expect a fun challenge within these sessions, each class is one hour and includes a 15 minute warm up that involves cardio and stretch.
“The focus of the classes will be co-ordination, style and ability to retain intricate choreography whilst fostering self-confidence and creative expression,” said Danny.
“If you enjoy watching Britney in concert then Commercial Jazz is for you and is suitable for 12 years and above.
“Heels is suitable for 16 years and above, reputable choreographer, Yanis Marshall who achieved world-wide recognition for his performances on Britain’s Got Talent is the best example of what to expect from Heel,” he said. “The style is both sexy and sassy, wearing heels is optional but the class is about understanding the technique of dancing in heels.”
Dancers of any skill level are welcome to attend the classes.
“These classes are about improving community and taking part in something new where they can share the experience with others,” said Danny.
“Regardless of your skill level, having fun whilst learning is the most important thing.
“The best part of hosting dance classes is providing a platform where people can express themselves, it’s not always about trying to be the best dancer, but being part of a positive environment and improving lifestyle,” he said.
“I definitely enjoy teaching, seeing students support one another and leaving class happy is most rewarding. I’m very much looking forward to these classes.”
Danny’s classes will take place at the GUOOF Memorial Hall and are $10 per session or $15 to participate in both, payments are cash only. For booking enquiries contact Danny via email, firstname.lastname@example.org
