Jade "Soul" Zuberi
Workshop: Decolonizing The Classroom

Themes: Funk & Turning Suffering Into Art

So what we are going to be diving into & what im gonna be having you do is Decolonizing The Classroom. We’ll be addressing how we view what is technical, we’ll even be leaving the Eurocentric way of leading a classroom and returning back to my roots of ancestral practices, which is going back to the circle to learn. We’ll be honoring pronouns, removing gendered language, i’ll be challenging you in various ways from addressing white privilege, to diving in what makes some of these Black American Vernacular dances what they are thru osmosis. Even we’ll be really digesting Black American music to truly connect & pull out your OWN authenticity without tryna look or move Black. These classes/workshops will test your Mind, Body & even your spirit, some come ego free and ready to learn how to Unlearn.

Workshop Must Brings: Bring Street Shoes, Comfortable Clothes to sweat and relax in and any food and water you need during break.

The workshop is held at KU.BE, Dirch Passers Allé 4, 2000 Frederiksberg in studio: Zen 1.

How to get there?
Zen 1 is located on third floor, please use the backstairs to access the studio.
Go in via the main entrance on first floor, keep going straight ahead towards the changing rooms next to the climbing area on the first floor, open the door in the far end and go up the stairs until you arrive on the third floor. Zen 1 is through the door on your right side.

Accessibility requires a little extra preparation. The studios are equipped for wheelchair users. It is possible to use the lift for access up to the 3rd floor. If you wish to use this, please let us know in advance, as the studio you have to go through via the lift is sometimes booked.
We kindly ask you to meet up 15 minutes prior to class, so there is time for “self check in” with your QR code on the ticket.

Only as a member, you can take part in Dansehallerne’s training activities – a year-round program with approximately 5 days of training per week. This is for all professional members no matter background in dance training, and it is possible to drop in. International guests can also join training for free for up to 1 month.

Jade “Soul” Zuberi has been a world class Movement Artist/Artivist since 2012, winning & teaching in various underground street contests/venues like Japan, Montreal, Toronto, LA, India, China and many more, even making it onto Season 10 So You Think You Can Dance Top 18. Now retired for 2 years, Soul has become a household name when it comes to pushing what’s possible within Street Dance, rather its artistically or within contests formats from his ethereal ear for Music, complex rhythms or creative concepts. No matter the space, Soul has always unapologetically taken up space and devoted years to challenging norms within dance and the arts, to now focusing his energy & efforts on decolonizing the arts and using his platform and multitude of marginalized identies to inspire, disrupt and transform by any means necessary to create a safer future for those heavily impacted by Eurocentric ideologies.
