Dance is great for both boys and girls, but we believe it's important to offer boys an environment in which they can relax and express themselves while learning the fundamentals of dance. This class is designed specifically for boys, to improve their hip hop knowledge, technique and skills and to increase confidence.

Hip-hop involves a wide range of styles but is characterised by isolations (moving a certain body part independently from others), breaking, locking & popping. What distinguishes hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often freestyle (improvisational) in nature and hip-hop dance crews often engage in freestyle dance competitions, colloquially referred to as battles. Crews, freestyling, and battles are identifiers of this style.

Hip Hop is a lot more relaxed and open to interpretation than Ballet or Jazz and emphasis is placed on more on musicality than technique – how you ‘feel’ or interpret the music. Hip hop is an entertaining and often humorous dance form set to current music (always age appropriate at Rise Dance Co).

The timetable is subject to change and classes will only proceed if we have sufficient enrolments a week before the start date, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Refunds will apply for classes which do not proceed.
