HIP HOP CLASS
This Hip Hop class is a fun way for any student to explore the pop culture phenomenon hip-hop! Hip Hop’s roots are in African dance or funk jazz and street dance. Hip Hop dancing is an ideal way to express one’s creativeness. It allows you to be expressive through the movement. The dance comes from the soul. The body movements go with the beat and rhythm of hip hop music. There is breaking, popping, locking, and free styling in hip hop dances. The jumps, breaks, and rotations in the dance are combined in such a way that the dance style becomes an informal and explosive one.
Hip hop dancing is considered a good exercise for those who perform these dances. It helps to improve flexibility and develop body balance. It also helps with your muscle coordination. This dance allows the dancers to improve their own style and to remain in good body shape. It also leads the dancers to a state of spiritual wholeness.
Hip hop dancing includes many steps and movements that are not present in ballet and ballroom dancing. The jazz, ballet, and other traditional dance forms are technical and require more formal training. There is a term for each and every movement in jazz and ballet. But this is not the case with hip hop dancing and the dancers experience freedom while dancing. The only thing the dancers should have is to become familiar with the dancing technique. Hip hop dancing can be learned by all those who are interested in dancing.
The class will start with a warm up that includes stretching and body strengthening, then they will work on specific street style movements and then will ultimately learn an entire hip hop routine that they can perfect and show off to their family and friends!
