Hip Hop Dance

Hip hop dance refers to dance styles, mainly street dance styles, primarily danced to hip hop music or that have evolved as a part of the hip hop culture.

These later styles are sometimes referred to as new school or new style while the older styles, including breakdance and various funk styles that were incorporated into hip hop, are considered old school.
Hip hop dancing is evolving in many different directions today, heavily influenced by the evolution of hip hop music and its popularity in media.
What distinguishes hip-hop from other forms of dance is that it is often "freestyle" (improvisational) in nature.

Our Dance Families Thoughts

  •  I sat in on Haleigh's dance class today (4-5 wednesday class) and I feel compelled to tell you how wonderful it was. I know at this young age it can be an extremely difficult task to try to teach them anything, let alone a complex dance routine but your instructors make it look easy. They are such amazing teachers and our kids are lucky to have them. They are kind, patient and fun and I now see why Haleigh loves her dance class as much she does!  Thank you for having such a caring dance studio where my daughter is taught the true meaning of dance.
