HIP HOP

The first dance associated with hip hop was breakdancing. Whilst breakdancing consists primarily of moves executed close to the ground, the majority of hip hop moves are done whilst standing. The choreography often makes use of the same techniques found in other forms of Urban Dance, such as popping, locking, capoeira and breaking.

It is the perfect place to start for new dancers (especially if you have never taken a dancing class before) and also gives you a great workout – you won’t even realise that you’re exercising!

Hip hop and funk students are encouraged to wear clothing that is loose, baggy and comfy (such as big t-shirts, track pants, and runners or sneakers)!
