 Spring Hip Hop Grade K-5

Class Description:
Does your child dance around the house? Does your child have a lot of energy and charisma? Do you want your child to enjoy dance? If so, then I would love to share with them my love for dance and provide a means for them to connect with peers over this distance learning period. Hip Hop can improve muscle tone, strengthen posture, increase balance and coordination and improve health. But the biggest benefit of dance is that it’s fun. Your child will learn choreography to Pop and Hip Hop hits that currently dominate the airwaves. We dance to express not to impress.
