Learn hip hop dancing, jazz technique, and poplocking at MusicAlley School of the Arts! We have many classes to choose from for ALL AGES!
Hip-Hop dancing was originally known in its New York roots as Break Dancing. Through the decades many styles have fallen under the umbrella of Hip-Hop such as Popping, House, Wacking and Boogaloo, which are all their own dance styles. Another dance from which emerged from the roots of Hip-Hop is called Jazz-Funk. Jazz-Funk is the fusion of Jazz dance, Hip-Hop and Wacking styles.
In this class our teachers will use the fundamentals of Hip Hop/Jazz-Funk and other closely related styles to expose students to the creative movements in these styles. Coordination, musicality, strength, flexibility, memorization and body isolations will give each dancer the tools they need to grow into their own style of Hip-Hop/Jazz-Funk. Jazz dance class goes hand in hand with hip hop to help with extra practice in isolations, coordination and musicality exercises.
Tap dancing is characterized by rhythm, syncopation and improvisation. The heel and toe of the shoe are both made of metal plates that bring the essence of tap to life. Tap dancing builds articulation, musicality, smoothness, and coordination. Tap dancing goes hand in hand with Jazz and Musical Theater dance.
