Hip Hop Dance Choreography (Level 1)
Choreography by Rae
In this 8 week semester we'll combine Old School Hip Hop Dance moves with Street Jazz to create our own choreography.
Let's dance! Students will expand their knowledge of Old School Hip Hop Dance moves and Street Jazz/ Commercial Hip Hop while creating choreography. Unlike a YouTube video or video game, students learn to do more than just follow. They’ll learn dance technique, Hip Hop terminology, how to create their own freestyle, and how to collaborate on choreography. In-class discussion will allow participants to ask questions and contribute movement ideas. Participants will have the benefit of...
Building knowledge of hip hop dance moves and terminology. Understanding how choreographers use counting to structure routines. Improved strength and endurance. Improved choreography memorization technique. Improved freestyle dance skills.

Periodically the teacher may present a short dance clip from YouTube (a short dance routine from World of Dance Junior) to aide in broadening student understanding of what Hip Hop Dance or Choreography can look like. A water bottle is recommended Appropriate clothing to allow for unrestricted movement (if your child wishes to wear a dress or skirt, please have shorts or pants underneath).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Physical Advisory: This class involves physical movement. Shoes are not required for class and are optional. If your child is dancing on a wooden floor, then shoes or bare feet may be ideal as children may slip when wearing just socks. If your child is dancing on a carpet, socks may be ideal as sliding will be easier. Ideally, the dance space will be at least feet 3-4 feet wide and free of obstruction. Participants have been known to dance in living rooms, bedrooms, and any other space that allows arms to be extended out to the side. By registering for this class it is understood that each family has considered the space the child is moving in and its appropriateness for a movement-based activity. By registering for this class it is understood that the instructor is not responsible for injuries that may result from participation including injuries that may result from children not following directions. Injuries may include, bumps or bruises (example: a kid spins and falls down), fractures/ sprains/ broken limbs (example: a kid chooses not to follow instruction and tries to do a backflip). By registering for this class it is understood that each family has considered the physical health of their child and has taken into consideration any restrictions on movement that a family physician has advised. While most of the movements are not vigorous enough to upset an individual's asthma, we respect that each individual has different physical abilities. Children are encouraged to stop any movement that causes physical or emotional pain. If you are unsure whether your child will be able to fully participate physically you are welcome to email the instructor prior to registration. The instructor is not a physician and cannot give medical advice.
