Hip Hop

For ages 6+

Igniting mind, body & spirit through Hip Hop

Hip Hop is a cutting-edge dance form that is fun yet challenging.  Blending clean tight jazz-based movements with hard-hitting isolations, and adding in a beat or rhythm from today's urban music, dancers ignite their mind, body, and spirit to create moves that are similar to the most current music video.  Emphasis is placed on musicality along with Jazz dance technique.  Jazz training is helpful and recommended in understanding the movement required of today's Hip Hop Dancer.

Classes

Hip Hop I-V

The focus of our Hip Hop classes is to introduce, engage, and encourage through urban movement using trendy and popular rhythms to a variety of beats and sounds. An introduction to what hip hop really is and how it affects daily movement. Engage students with the movement from popular and current hip-hop styles. Encourage students to continue with the new knowledge of movement and appreciation for new musicality and movement.  

Adult Hip Hop

Each class starts with mental relaxation (as your mind is just as important in dance as the body). Then moves into appropriate stretches and callisthenics to release stress in the body. Our adult class movement consists of beginner yet challenging combos to music familiar to OUR time period, age and entertainment level. Classes are designed to burn calories, elevate healthy heart rates, and most importantly...have FUN!
