Hip Hop is an ever evolving sub culture whose roots really started growing in the 1970s. While Hip Hop covers many different medias; music, beat boxing, etc, this class will focus on movement art. Hip Hop Dance is a street style of dance that evolved from this culture.
Class will begin with a warm up, students will learn technical studies and will end with a cool down. Over this session there will be a focus on Popping and Animation alongside of grooves and general Hip Hop studies. Students will focus on developing musicality, understanding rhythm, practicing isolations and experiencing level and weight change. They will work with a variety of songs, sometimes emphasizing lyricism, sometimes focusing on the different beats and understanding the relationship between dance and movement. Force will be explored through practicing both hard and soft, or smooth movements. Lessons will promote body control and spacial awareness. Students will also be given an opportunity to freestyle and learn about cyphers and dance battles.
In addition to being informative and historical in context, this class promotes wellness and exercise.
