Why We Dance will be presenting several FREE dance classes at the Fanwood Forest Road Park building on Saturday, March 29 starting at 1 p.m. Participants can register for classes on the day of the event. There will be free refreshments and door prizes.

   These workshops are free and open to the public. The classes will include an African Dance class taught by Titilayo Majoyeogbe; a belly dance class taught by Kathleen McMahon also a registered nurse and a hip class taught by Tatianna J. Dorsey. Dorsey will be teaching choreography to a Mindless Behavior song.

      In addition to this Iris Nelson will give a demonstration on how to make natural hair products. Nelson started making products at home for her daughter’s hair.

“The reason why I went natural is because of my youngest daughter. She wanted all the latest styles and perms. I never put a chemical in her hair and decided to take the natural hair journey with her,” Nelson said. “I learned a lot about myself along the way about keeping my confidence after I did the big chop.”

         In recent years there has been an explosion in the natural hair industry with many young girls using braids and twist outs to style there hair.

  “Why We Dance has been putting together events free and open to the community for six years. Different forms of dance and information about natural hair is what young people are really interested in right now. I am looking for a great turnout to this event,” said Candace Waller, Why We Dance coordinator.

   This (history or education or arts) program is made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grantfrom the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

     For more information about the event contact Why We Dance Coordinator Candace Waller at 908.432.2003 or whywedance@gmail.com.
