In this class, students will learn the beginning steps of breakdancing. To maximize our time, in between learning and practicing dance steps I will be teaching mini lessons as we catch our breath and drink water. My dance teaching theory is "While the body rests, the mind is still at work." Students will get a chance to explore new movements gradually as the teacher breaks down the elements of each step.

By the end of class students will be able to - Confidently perform three signature poses - Link together two different dance steps - Adapt more comfortably in a dance setting
I traveled around the world (30+ countries) while teaching and learning from the local dancers. Also, I was mentored by a world renown breakdancer while living in Korea for three years. This mentorship mixed with my experience and personal training has made me particularly knowledgeable and skilled in the topic.
Homework is practice the major two steps to one of the following songs - "Don't Sweat the Technique" by Eric B. & Rakim - "Squeeze Me" by Kraak & Smaak
Students will need - a comfortable pair of shoes (sneakers preferred) - clothes they can move in (no over-sized clothing, no skirts) - Water - Distance from the camera to see students head to toe
Learner progress is assessed by how well they demonstrate the steps and combine them without pause.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Music is a mix of hip-hop and funk, but has been screened for appropriate lyrics. It is also advisable that students should wear comfortable shoes (sneakers) and clothes for dancing (not oversized). As well, students should have a clear open space for dancing and a distance from the computer that allows me to see them from head to toe in order to ensure they're doing the moves properly. A water bottle is also required for brief breaks.
