The term "Hip Hop" covers a variety of styles including house, locking, popping, and waiving to name a few. Our hip hop classes utilize upbeat and age-appropriate music and moves from various genres. This is a high-energy class that not only teaches stylized movements and technique but also instills rhythm and precision in your

muscle memory.

Breaking, also known as b-boying, is a style of dance that incorporates rhythm, floorwork and tricks. These classes teach the fundamentals of b-boying, covering categories such as toprock, footwork, power moves

and freezes.
