The class takes place every Friday from 6pm, in Wonderland studios. The dances are inspired by traditional African moves from Ethiopia.

Over the past year, Jessie has travelled around Africa studying Ethiopian rhythm and movement. The dance lessons are inspired by her travels.

Jessie explains the meaning behind each movement and combines the diverse dances into an hour-long journey around Ethiopia.

“Everyone tends to be a little apprehensive at first but once they get into the swing of things, they let themselves go. Its great to see people smiling laughing and getting some real enjoyment out of the class,” said Jessie
