In all programs, you will learn some of the basics and foundational moves in breakdancing such as top rock, footwork, power moves, freezes, spins, drops, and basic tumbling. We will also show you how to incorporate your character, style, and feel by expressing yourself through this fantastic dance.
Each class will begin with a variety of stretches and warm-ups, which will include push-ups, sit-ups, wrist warm-ups, handstands, and headstands. These basics are good for the core muscles, cardiovascular, bone development, balance, fat burn and help to prevent body injuries in the future.
The class has been structured to prepare your body mentally and physically as the class advances. Each move or technique introduced in course will be integrated into the proceeding classes; with a lot of practical hands-on participation. After the thorough warm up, foundational and the basics in B-Boying/B-Girling Dance steps and moves are incorporated into a full routine and repeated. By doing this, the movements will be a lot sharper and natural.
All programs promote the importance of goal reaching by substituting the student's challenges with the similar attributes that life presents to the youth. The students will then have set goals to accomplish every week. These goals may seem complicated and impossible at sometimes, but our role is to motivate, build confidence and show them that their goals are attainable. As inspiring mentors, we use this method in our class to create an ongoing structure of goals. Preparing for performances, memorizing choreography, depending on one another, and physical training are some examples of empowering the student.
Not only do the students learn how to work as a team, but they also learn stage and performance terms that are used in the professional dance world. Stage etiquette is also essential when performing, and we advise them to carry on the practices to the real world. The students are expected to be on time to class and to remember and review dance steps learned in the previous lesson. The fun thing that separates Healthy Hip-Hop from any other program is that Improvisation is also involved with the program, which allows the students to have many opportunities to highlight themselves in class. At the end of the program that students will have learned a 15-30 minute mini-concert that will be performed by their classmates, parents, and staff.
