For our youngest hip hop dancers, we provide a fun environment for developing self-awareness and body control. Kids learn basic concepts for arm gestures and poses, foot work and floor work. For the 4-8 yrs group, teamwork is a primary theme. The students work in small groups to practice skills or choreography, ultimately, creating the foundation for accountability, communication and leadership. Through kids’ hip hop, your little ones will learn how to groove out to pop and hip hop beats while also reinforcing life skills that support successful engagement in other communities and activities.
