    Class Description

    Hip-hop Groove Foundations focuses on essential hip-hop techniques (i.e. isolations, polyrhythm, footwork, groove) as a way for students to deepen the understanding of their body, and to broaden their tools for individual expression. The class ebbs-and-flows between rigorous technical content through drills, combinations, and improvisatory cypher explorations. Students should expect to leave class kinesthetically, culturally, and spiritually awakened with deep connections to afro-centric aesthetics through a hip-hop lens.
