Breakdance – (Ages 7+, 55 minutes) Get your Hip Hop style on! Learn how to destroy the dance floor with footwork, freezes, timing, and power moves.
Known as B-Boying (Breakdancers) is a unique form of dance evolved from the street Hip Hop movement in the South Bronx of NYC in the 70s. Our classes continue the tradition of street style movements in a safe, controlled environment. We focus our classes on four core training aspects of breakdance.
Toprocks – a major element of breakdance. It generally refers to foot movement performed from a standing position, relying upon a mixture of coordination, flexibility, rhythm, and most importantly, style.
Footwork – also know as Downrock, is your floor foot movement, incorporating moving your hands and feet together into your dance work.
Freezes – a technique that involves halting all body motion, often in an interesting or balance-intensive position. It is implied that the position is hit and held from motion as if freezing in motion. Balance and timing are the names of this game.
Power Moves – are usually the most acrobatic and visually impressive part of a b-boy/b-girls routine. Power moves are explosive body movements that generally use spinning and repetition.
