Asia Martin is scheduled to host the “Believe In Your Legendary” workshop on March 11 and 12, and she’s giving valuable insight into the world of HBCU dance.
The iconic two-time captain of the Alabama State University Stingettes danceline has chosen to shift her attention away from the stands and dance classes, instead, taking her talents to the surrounding high school teams in the Montgomery area.
Martin told HBCU Buzz in an email that oftentimes people “reach out to me for assistance and due to the fact that I don’t get much free time outside of school and other obligations I’m not always able to make that happen.”
She added, “I feel as though I owe a great deal of my success to the city of Montgomery so I made it my priority to find a way to give them even a portion of what they’ve given me by doing this workshop before I graduate this May.”
Attendees will be given basic knowledge of dance technique, including ballet, turns and tricks, stretching and conditioning, and Jazz-funk.
Martin will host the free 2-day workshop that will engage Montgomery high school students with workshops to be followed with tips and advice.
Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated Asia Martin’s title. She was the two-time captain of the ASU Stingettes. The Buzz regrets the error.
