Hip Hop’s fresh approach combines fundamental dance techniques with urban elements to create an entirely new style of dance that is fun and relevant. We use the most upbeat and age-appropriate music to create exciting hip-hop dance classes for kids and toddlers. At Stellar Dance Studio, we focus on teaching basic jumps, isolations, and body waves along with elements of popping, locking, and tumbling. Our hip-hop classes are fast-paced and follow a high-energy structure including warm-up, across the floor combinations, floor work, and choreography. Hip Hop encourages individuality as students learn to put their own personality into each move.
