Hip-Hop Meets Dancehall (HMD) is an open-level community dance workshop developed by Leyda "Lady Sol" Garcia, a self-proclaimed Professor of Practice who grew up in Chicago's street dance community at the intersection of House, Hip-Hop & Dancehall club culture. HMD explores the Jamaican sound system and its influence on Hip-Hop's foundation, (namely music, dance, and community). Participants will be introduced to Jamaican social dances of the 90's and 2000's which developed in direct connection to its popular music genre, Dancehall.
