Thursday with LHPAC: Hip-hop (class) hooray!

Hip-hop HOORAY!
-- Naughty by Nature, "Hip Hop Hooray," 1993

Okay, enough time spent in the Way-Back Machine. Let's go back to the future of hip-hop: a weekly dance class for kids at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center.
Every Thursday evening, kids ages six to twelve can take lessons from Simon Komphadith, Kohei Takahira and Anna Nagy.
Some kids, like Aiyanah (the one in the pink hoodie above) found their way to this class the easy way: they saw the sign...
... and stayed for more. Like Aiyanah, Chloe and her brother Ethan (below) also plan to come back in the following weeks now that their mom's found a gender-neutral activity both kids like.
But not all the young dancers live in the LHPAC neighborhood.
Eleven-year-old Xzavier and his mom make the half-hour trip from Mill Creek to Seattle -- specifically for this class. Details:

WHEN: Tonight and every Thursday night, 5:30pm-8:30pm
WHERE: Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, Seattle
COST: Free!

Break out the breathable clothes -- the kids will be working hard! But they're having fun waving their hands (and feet) in the air.
