Hip-hop master class Oct. 23 will benefit LU Dance Team

A master class in hip-hop Sunday, Oct. 23, will benefit the Lamar University Dance Team, which is hosting the event.

Brixey Blankenship, LU Dance Team coordinator, and Justin Streeter, a local hip-hop instructor, will teach the class from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Fitness Studio in the Sheila Umphrey Recreational Sports Center.

“Justin and I will collaborate to teach an exciting class open to the community,” Blankenship said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students from throughout the region to dance with new people and to learn. It’s a master class you do not want to miss.”

Participation is priced at $5 for LU students and $10 for members of the community, with proceeds to benefit the dance team.
