Camp-in-Place #AtHomeArt: Dancing On My Own

Bust a move at a distance with Camp Contemporary instructor Joshua Okpara

The phrase "dance like no one's watching" has taken on a new meaning during the last few months of quarantine. For all those rug-cutters who are missing the energy of the dance floor during this moment of physical distancing, Camp Contemporary instructor Joshua Okpara is here to help. His Camp-in-Place #AtHomeArt video tutorial will teach you a few moves to master your own street-dance combo in style.

Okpara leads many of Oklahoma Contemporary's youth dance camps, and he will be teaching adult classes this fall. Until then, clear some space, grab a water bottle and get ready to bust a move with the help of Okpara's energizing personality and fire dance moves.

Enough talking. Let's dance!
