Hip Hop Senior – for Years 8-13

 

Hip hop is a high-energy class that infuses the latest styles of street and urban dance. Classes will encourage students to step outside of the box by bringing their own individual style and personality to the movements. Class includes warm-up and conditioning to help prepare students for more intense movements.

Uniform

 

Dance schools all around the world wear a dance uniform, to help students and teachers alike get the most out of class. Long hair should be in a ballet bun for ballet or tied back neatly for class.

For your first class, don’t worry if you don’t have the uniform yet, just wear something comfortable to move in, and bare feet.  Upon enrolment we will send you all the information you need about dance uniform, hair etc.  

Hip Hop Uniform:

  • Black WDA t-shirt or top
  • Black leggings or track pants
  • Dance-specific sneakers (no street shoes in studio please – it brings in dirt/dust)
