    Class Description:



    Hip Hop: Ms. Vee bases her Hip-Hop style on the street dances from which it originated. Her choreography is largely influenced by the party/club dances of the Old and New school, Popping, Locking, and Breakin’. This is a high energy class with an emphasis on fun, flava, and attitude. Class breakdown: warm up focusing on grooving, stretch, technique breakdown/drilling and combination. Students are sure to gain a better understanding of where the dance came from and a greater confidence with the movement.

    Locking: The class will begin with a soul-dance-based warm up/stretch, followed by technique breakdown and drills across the floor, a short phrase of choreography, and often concluded with a freestyle circle. The importance of improvisational dancing in Locking has been stressed since the beginning by the dance's creator, Don Campbell. Participation in the freestyle circle is encouraged, but not required.
