Hip Hop I
This class is a stepping stone into the realm of the Hip Hop genre, not merely the dance. Looking at various styles of hip hop including lockin and social dances to name a few, the goal of the class is to put a name to the iconic movements we know as characteristics of hip hop, such as the Biz Markie from the 90s and the Woah from the 2010s. Starting with a warmup to understand the nuances of the movement before jumping into the material at hand!
For ages 8+. No previous experience required.
