Campus Recreation Offers New Hip Hop Dance Class

August 29, 2017

MISSOULA – Campus Recreation at the University of Montana will offer a new hip hop dance class this fall semester called DanceFX.

Taught by instructor Quentin Robinson, DanceFX is a progressive class in which students build on what they have learned each week.

“DanceFX UM is great for beginner- to immediate-level dancers looking for fun, upbeat classes,” Robinson said. “It is a great way to get a good workout and gain confidence, with opportunities to be featured in upcoming performances.” 

The class will be held on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Sept. 12 through Dec. 12. It costs $45 for the semester and is open to Fitness and Recreation Center members or those who purchase guest passes. Robinson will lead a free demo class from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5, during Campus Recreation’s Free Fitness Week.

Robinson has been dancing for 19 years and is known as SpecialFX. He has performed and taught internationally and his dancing has been featured on many platforms, including TEDx, VidCon, BET and more. Robinson also is a Marine Corps combat veteran who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He is currently working on an international documentary about how dance can bridge cultural gaps.
