Hip Hop / Funk
Urban Moves in Hip Hop Dance Classes
Hip Hop is another dance style that falls under the Urban Dance banner. Hip Hop is often seen in music video clips particularly those of Urban performers like Usher and Rihanna. Eventually, this style became so popular, mainstream artists such as Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake began using hip hop dance moves in their music videos. Learn these dance moves during one of our hip hop dance classes and give a free rein to your creativity.
Hip Hop choreography often uses some of the components and techniques of other forms of Urban Dance such as Popping, Locking and Breaking. Martial arts like Capoeira are also looked to for inspiration. Professional choreographers can teach you these techniques when you join our Hip Hop dance classes. Dance like a real hip hop star after just a few sessions.
Regular Hip Hop dance classes start off with a short warm up which then moves into stretching. After warming up and stretching, isolation exercises are then taught and revised. These exercises allow dancers to learn more about moving different parts of their body separately. The final section of the class is the routine where sections of choreography are taught and put together to form a short routine which is then put to music and danced through.
Funk dancing is similar to the dancing that you will find in the latest music videos. Just like hip hop dance classes, our funk dance lessons are fun and set to the latest music trends. Funk allows you to work out without realising that you are exercising. It is a perfect place to start if you have never danced before. A usual class begins with a funky warm-up and some light stretching, followed by a routine and finishing up with a short cool down.
