A few words about GROOVE DAYS
Groove Days is a traditional weekend full of hiphop culture, classes, party and knowledge. This event is frequented not only by beginners, but also by long-time dancers, and it is for its unique atmosphere that they often come back.
The lectors are chosen carefully so that the classes would be as diverse as possible, also in terms of development of particular styles. In the daytime, dancers take classes and in the evening, they can attend discussions with their teachers. Then, there is a crucial part of Groove Days and that's a PARTY with our favourite DJ Nox, DJ S-Feelin or DJ Boruff!
During the classes, teachers lay stress especially on the foundations, individuality, music and sharing the urban community. What is amazing about Groove Days is the individual attitude of each lector, the discussions and mainly a friendly atmosphere during the whole weekend.
