Hip Hop teaches styles of dance performed to hip hop music, and to music styles that have developed as part of the hip hop culture.  Students will learn a variety of styles including breaking and popping, as well as developing their own unique expression through free-styling, cyphers and choreographic tasks.

What to Wear
Arms and legs need to be covered so that spinning, gliding and turning on the ground can be done without skin making contact with the floor. A long sleeved t-shirt and track pants will do the job nicely.
