Hip Hop Dance Classes


There are tons of hip-hop dance classes on the market today. In fact, hip hop is of the most wellknown styles that evolved into an entire popular sub-culture. Random flash mobs on the streets with a group of street dancers belting out moves can give you the impression that this dance form is unstructured and uncoordinated. This couldn't be further from the truth. Hip-hop is not just a freestyle dance, it is a movement that represents the freedom to learn, grow and evolve. In reality, Hip-Hop is a cover all term for modern street dance that includes complex moves like Breaking, Locking and Popping.


Here are few tips to help you improve your hip-hop dancing skills:

Follow the beat. Counts in a dance are like a road map leading to the right rhythm of a dance routine. So, when you do a certain move, it becomes easier to concentrate on 8 counts which are usually the standard beat counts in a hip-hop dance routine.


Follow the Rhythm. There is a pattern and a cadence to the beats you hear in your hip-hop class. Add to that the clapping, snapping and foot tapping and you get a rhythmic, catchy and powerful dance routine.


Savour the community. The beautiful thing about hip-hop is that you get to connect with the people around you to create positive vibes and meet like-minded people. The more time you spend enjoying and connecting, the better your dance looks!


Channel the energy. Ever notice that hip-hop dancers are so enthusiastic, energetic and just allaround full of good vibes? The goal is to ‘feel’ the music and move to it. There is this electricity in the air when you get into the dancing and really start to enjoy it.


Vary the rhythm. Dancing at higher speeds with complicated moves can be very impressive, but remember this - it only looks good when your movements are skilled and controlled. It makes your dance look seamless and your technique neat and tidy. Contrast is also great so don’t be afraid to go from fast, hard hitting to milking with slower movements.


Hip-hop can be a really enjoyable dance form to learn where you can incorporate variation with your dance moves, cadence, tempo and rhythm. Even if you are still working on your technique as a dancer, you can learn to enjoy the process of building your hip-hop dancing skills. Just smile, breath, focus and dance your heart out!
