This is an Afrobeats class and is a fun way to meet people, get fit, and learn a routine with movements inspired by the African diaspora. Class is offered in collaboration with AfroUrban Society. Lydia 'LydRock' Rockson is a dancer and choreographer with a passion for contemporary and cultural African dance. Born in Tema, Ghana, raised in New York and Fort Worth, Texas and currently living in Houson, Texas, Lydia has been dancing all her life. A psychology graduate of University of Houston, she started professionally dancing in her freshman year and since then has developed her signature 'AfriRock' style, a mix of hip hop and new African dance. She currently teaches classes to all ages, and also performs with top names in the industry including Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Dbanj, Mr. Eazi and Tekno to name a few. LydRock's creative prowess surpasses just the dance floor, she also has an eye for fashion and styling. Guided by the quote "I'll rather try and fail than to not try at all," her goal is to tour the world teaching and empowering dancers and non dancers alike to aspire to be more than their current situation while cultivating and spreading the culture!
