Andre Lumpkin is an artist, educator, and entrepreneur from Athens GA. Although immersed in different cultural dance forms from a young age, he started his formal training at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Under the guidance of the dance program, he worked with artists and companies such as Blake Beckham, Kyle Abraham, Jennifer Archibald, StaibDance, and Catellier Dance projects. Majoring in Sociology and minoring in Dance and Theater Studies, Lumpkin’s focus and passion centered on re-integrating the humanities back into the community and everyday life.
As an alumnus of Emory, Lumpkin continued on to earn his M.F.A in Choreography and Performance from The Florida State University School of Dance in 2017. During his graduate studies, He had the chance to work with renowned artists such as Jawole Zollar, Rodger Belman (R.I.P.), Jaamil Kosoko, and Joya Powell, and hone his unique artistic voice. Post Graduate School Lumpkin continues to create, educate and perform nationally and internationally. As a professional, Lumpkin has dedicated himself to a holistic approach to choreography, teaching, performing, production design, and community engagement.
House Music, descended from Disco, came of age in the warehouses of Chicago and underground clubs of New York City. Though often overshadowed by its more assertive cousin Hip-hop, House Culture created a true space of freedom and liberation for people of all creeds. This infectious upbeat dance-centered wave made its way around the world and re-discovered its ancestral lineage in the burgeoning Afrobeats. This fusion meshes past, present, and future and uplifts the diaspora on a vibrational level. This class sits at the core of that fusion, building community through the practice of sharing in joy with one another. The class is by nature Aerobic and High Intensity, however, taught from a foundational level. Beginners or Veterans will be able to engage and enjoy. Come get Lifted in Afrohouse!
