Practical Details:

New students are welcome at any class. Each session is taught at a flexible level to encourage a comfortable, self-paced learning experience.

We dance barefoot.  If you need dance shoes, they must be clean, non-marking, and used only indoors. Please see the instructor before trying out any new shoes.

To accommodate the chemically sensitive, please refrain from wearing scented products to class.

INCLEMENT WEATHER / SNOW POLICY — In case of severe or threatening weather, please check Wassa Dance on Facebook or check back here for any cancellations.


— Testimonial —

"Wassa Dance is an experience in connecting ancient rhythms to the soul body in motion. It all starts from the ground up. Lara has a way of teaching you how to move with insight, clarity and exuberance. I noticed ways of moving and details of the dance I had never thought of before. Lara has a strong ability to bring your attention to the subtleties of African dance without losing the passion and joy of expression. She has a warrior's heart, a dancer's grace and she can get you shaking your booty in no time flat!"
