a fall dance class with mari nakama


Portland's premiere Hip Hop Instructor, Mari Nakama, is coming to YoYo to teach us the iconic dance from Michael Jackson's Thriller music video!  Get ready to unlock your body and move with attitude.  Never tried?  No problem!  With Mari's expert guidance and no-stress demeanor, this is all about having fun and feeling free!

We are offering early bird pricing ($32) through October, 7th.  It is $38 starting October 8th. 


Over the past 17 years, Mari has been part of the wonderful dance scene in Portland. You might have seen her on the court at a Blazer game with the BlazerDancer or the Trailblazer Hip Hop Squad (or maybe you remember the WNBA’s Portland Fire Hip Hop Squad??) She's done some aerial work with A-WOL Dance Collective, hanging from the rafters and trees. These days she dances with Lyfe Dance Company and teaches about town. She also sweats it up at YoYo just about every day, and now she's coming here to share her special gift of dance!


Any cancellation with more than 48 hours notice will result in account credit for the full amount of the workshop. All cancellations within 48 hours will not receive any refund or credit. Thank you for your understanding.
