Our Hip Hop dancers develop focus, strength, and agility while having fun. This is an excellent class for high-energy kids who want to take a fast and fun dance class.

The word discipline can be interpreted in many ways. Our students are taught the art of stillness and the impact it can have on their performance. Our bodies are not designed to be still and it takes practice and high levels of concentration to perfect.
Respect is not necessary something that should just be paid upwards to elders and authority figures. We teach our students to respect their day-to-day environment, their friends, classmates and colleagues, but most importantly – themselves.
