Hip hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip hop music that evolved from the hip hop culture. The first dance associated with hip hop was breakdancing. While breakdancing consists primarily of moves executed close to the ground, the majority of hip hop dance moves are done standing up. Hip hop for children is fun and exciting. Hip hop for teens is also fun and provide a way to build self confidence when on the dance floor. Hip hop for adults allows for confidence when getting out onto that dance floor with friends. Hip hop dance also includes popping and locking as part of the moves.
Hip hop developed from several cultures, including jazz, rock, tap and American and Latino cultures. Hip hop dance is a very energetic form of dancing. It is unique in that it allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities. The hip hop culture is influenced by the following four elements: Disc jockeys, graffiti (art), MCs (rappers) and B-boys and B-girls (breaker boys and breaker girls)
Hip hop classes for kids, teen hip hop classes and adult hip hop classes, combine jazz dance and street funk dance styles in a high energy dance class. Hip hop lessons also develop technique, self confidence and stage performance. Here at Sharon’s we offer boys hip hop classes and girls hip hop classes, ages 5 and up. Our children’s hip hop classes use up-to-date music the children can relate to. Our teen hip hop classes and adult hip hop classes also use the most recognized music for all students to enjoy while learning hip hop dance steps. Children and teens can take the hip hop steps they learn and perform them on the dance floor at a school dance. Adults can take the hip hop steps they learn and go out on the town to a club and dance the night away, feeling confident in their moves!
Whether it is a children’s hip hop class, teen hip hop class or adult hip hop class, dress so you can move! For girls hip hop classes, yoga or jazz pants and a t-shirt (tight fitting), crop top or leotard with jazz shoes or jazz sneakers are appropriate. For boys hip hop classes, gym shorts or sweat pants and a t-shirt with jazz shoes or jazz sneakers are the outfit to wear.
