4 NYC Dance Classes That Will Teach You Beyoncé Moves
Master “Formation” in an hour
Beyoncé called. She’s looking for new backup dancers and wanted to know if we knew anyone who might be interested.
We gave her your name.
Here are four NYC dance classes that will teach you Bey’s moves before her next tour.
If You Want to Perfect Your “Formation”...
You’re not content to just learn some Bey-esque moves and call it a day. You have serious backup dancer goals, dammit, and you want to get the moves right. Broadway Bodies offers classes song-by-song, so you can start with “Single Ladies” and work your way up to “Formation.”
Chelsea Studios; 18 W. 18th St. (at Fifth Ave.); 212-807-0202 or broadwaybodies.com
If You Want a Sweaty, Beytastic Workout...
Sign up to learn “Hold Up” or “Sorry” at Banana Skirt’s PopStar Fitness class and, in an hour, you can expect to burn between 400 and 800 calories. Whoa. Bring a towel.
Pearl Studios; 500 Eighth Ave. (at 35th St.); 888-222-9066 or bananaskirt.net
If You and Your Beyhive Want to Have Fun and Drink Mimosas...
OK, so maybe you went out last night and had a few too many $20,000 bottles of Champagne. Rally your squad and take DivaDance’s Beyonce Brunch class--it’s a fun, upbeat workout that includes a round of mimosas at the end.
440 Studios; 440 Lafayette St. (at Astor Pl.); 212-529-0259 or divadance.com
If You Want a Two-Month Bey-tensive...
Let’s face it: Some of us are a little insecure about unleashing our inner Sasha Fierce in front of a bunch of strangers. Think of 92Y’s Beyoncé Dance Workout like tiptoeing into the swimming pool. You’ll gradually learn the moves over eight sessions, so you’ll be all ready for Queen Bey’s next tour.
92nd Street Y; 1395 Lexington Ave. (at 92nd St.); 212-415-5500 or 92Y.org
