Competitive Division Hip Hop

Hip-hop dance is a style of dance popularized in the 1980s by dance crews in the United States. Choreography is characterized by breaking, locking, and popping movements performed to hip-hop music.

Hip hop dance originated in the South Bronx community of New York City. It consists of an amalgamation of hip-hop cultural elements, such as deejaying, rapping, graffiti, and break dancing.

Recitals & Competitions

Our competitive division takes part in performances and competitions throughout the year. Please refer to the Dance Schedule for more information.

About the Class

Our hip-hop dance classes are a fun and exciting way to stay active. Our dancers are taught high-energy movements that they can incorporate both into planned choreography and purposeful freestyle segments.

Students are coached using foundation techniques in jazz with stylized and exaggerated street or club movements. What distinguishes hip-hop dance styles from other types of dance is dance groups will engage in freestyle or improvisational dance competitions colloquially referred to as “battles.”
