Don't Just Stand There . . .

Busting moves at the WVIZ studios.


Idea Center's glass-enclosed studio takes on a Warehouse District vibe for tonight's start of the eight-week Hip-Hop for Adults dance classes. The lessons will give rug-cutters some edgier moves than the standard fare of ballet and ballroom dancing. "The classes include people in their late teens all the way through their late 50s," says Linda Jackson, Playhouse Square's education programs manager. "But we're not going to ask anyone to bust a move on their head."That means you won't get lost in a shuffle of complex steps while learning more than the typical bump-and-grind routines. You'll also pick up a little confidence in your rhythm. "It's a beginners' class, designed for adults to be able to not only have great exercise and a little more exposure, but also to dance at a pace they can appreciate," says Jackson. "They can usually bust a bigger move than they think." The rump-shaking starts at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday through March 11 at the Idea Center at Playhouse Square, 1375 Euclid Avenue. Fee is $15 per class. Call 216-348-7909 or visit
Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 22. Continues through March 11, 2008
