Hi! We’re Susie and Rishone from Musicality Central

Two Buffalo based dancers who know that ANYONE can learn Hip Hop in the right atmosphere.

Where should You start?

- I have never danced before but I want to start -

We could not be more excited to bring you a BRAND NEW Choreography class that is absolutely for beginners. We know how it feels to want to dance so badly but feel like you can’t keep up in a choreography class.

So we have created Hip Hop Choreo 101 – A class where you learn BEGINNER Choreography at a BEGINNER’S pace. This is our first level of hip hop choreography training. So if you have ever taken our Hip Hop 4 Starters class and felt the pace may have been too fast or you have been intimidated at the thought of taking your first ever Hip Hop choreography class, THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU!

Before we add this new class to our weekly schedule, we are doing a 5 week trial run of Hip Hop Choreo 101. If the trial run gets a good response, we will look to officially add it to our regular, weekly classes.

This class is designed for beginners or experienced dancers of other genres to learn the foundations of hip hop technique and choreography concepts. In each class the instructor creates 4 eight counts so the students can dissect the technique at a slower pace and learn how to execute the movement in a routine.

This is our hip hop workout class dedicated to fitness training. It is a combination of energetic hip hop music and hip hop dance moves that allows you to actually enjoy an hour of exercise related to past/current hip hop music. This class is co-taught between Susie and Rishone. 

If you’ve ever felt intimidated by the thought of stepping into a dance class, this is the beginner class you have been waiting for. This is a JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE, and it will go at a pace you will feel comfortable with and walk out feeling confident and accomplished.

You no longer have to spend 20 minutes watching 45 second dance videos on Instagram or YouTube wishing that you knew how to do half the moves that captivated you. You can use that inspiration from these amazing dancers you watch to join us in this 6 week session designed to give you some cheat codes to help you learn the art form you have formed a visual relationship with. Then you can feel even more connected to the dancers you have become so familiar with through your new found knowledge of your own movement.

This is a 4 week session designed to help you organize the visual information you receive while in the process of taking class. It will teach you how to be more efficient in learning choreography and applying it immediately without speed bumps. This session is for all levels. Whether you already know how to dance or not, these are the skills you will need to have in order to learn the flow of choreography in class.

- I danced when I was younger and want to get back into it -

Intermediate Hip Hop is the second level in our Choreography training. This class is designed for those who are more experienced in combining hip hop technique and choreography concepts. The instructor creates 6-8 eight counts of choreography and teaches it at the intermediate pace. Routines generally extend to a 2 week period. 

We offer monthly workshops in various styles including Hip Hop, Dancehall, Dancehall Fusion, and Burlesque Infused Hip Hop. These workshops are for you if you have prior dance experience and are looking for a challenge!

Featured Workshops and News

It is officially summer, and we can't think of a better way to kick off the season than with all the good feels that come with a Burlesque Infused Hip Hop Workshop!

If you've ever attended one of our past Burlesque Infused Workshops, then you know we are all about the hair whips and body rolls. But this time around, we'll be switching up the vibe a bit with more of a sexy swag style. Of course, confidence is about to be on 100. So get ready ladies, it's about to get fierce.

This workshop will be held at ModDance Studio, and with that, space is limited. So if you plan on bringing sexy back this month, be sure to grab yo spot before its gone!

Fear either inspires or debilitates us

Fear dictates our actions and most of the time, our unconscious inaction/reaction. Fear could have crippled me from going after my goals, but instead it pushes me to face them head on. Some would say that is courageous, but for me every time I conquer a fear, it liberates and intensifies the belief in myself.

What Our Clients say

Susie and Rishone are some of the best and most talented people you could ever meet. They also attract awesome people to their classes. I always leave on such a high and in such a good headspace. Treat yourself to such good vibes and dancing with these class act people!

Vilona Trachtenberg

Rishone and Susie are both incredibly talented, but what sets them apart from most artists is their ability to teach! These two are connected to the music, which makes for an amazing experience. I highly recommend taking any one of their classes- it'll be good for your soul, trust me.

Lisa Bavisotto

Susie & Rishone consistently strive to be better teachers and show a sincere interest in their clients progress. They are always willing to lend their support and guidance to those who need it, and are consistent in their positive attitudes. Their classes are organized in a thoughtful way, and alway incorporate new ideas and approaches. They continuously strive to improve themselves AND their clients through living by example. They talk the talk and walk the walk. Highly recommend!

Jess Moore

Being new to the area, I didn’t know anyone but decided to attend dance class with Musicality Central. Everyone was so welcoming and it felt like “dance home” instantly. Not only are Susie and Rishone talented dancers but they’re life motivators, challenging their students every class. Thank you both for creating an open, comfortable and family-like environment.
