Music blares over laughter and the occasional clatter of hula-hoops hitting the floor.
One hula-hoop swings in a steady rhythm around the waist of Hanaan Abouzahr, of Ann Arbor.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Jasmine Steele kicks a hula-hoop up from the floor and over her head. It settles around her neck, continuously spinning.
Abouzahr and Steele practiced their hula skills at the weekly hula-hoop class on March 25 in ML 158 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
This class is one of the free dance classes offered by WCC’s Dance4Unity club.
Krissy Frazier founded Dance4Unity 15 years ago when she attended WCC, taking lots of dance classes, explained Noonie Anderson, a WCC dance instructor.
Frazier wanted the opportunity to hone her teaching and performance skills, Anderson explained.
Now, Dance4Unity offers lessons, taught by WCC students, in a variety of dances, including hip-hop, Zumba and swing.
