This course will focus on the techniques of Hip Hop (street/urban) dance styles. Through the introduction of foundational vocabularies of specific dances and their social and cultural contexts, students will develop proficiency in a few core techniques that are seen across a wide variety of Hip Hop dance styles. Students will practice proper alignment and posture for hip-hop dance, perform hip-hop isolations, grooves, footwork and basic movements such as popping, locking and waves and develop rhythmic interpretation of the movements to music.
