The Hip Hop (4to 8yrs, 9 to 12yrs, 13yrs n above)
The Hip-Hop dance is composed of the old school style which is Rocking, Bboying, Tutting, Locking and Popping and all other Hip-Hop moves like Running Man,
Cabbage Patch, Lean Back etc. Now, the new generation came up with something fresh as well named, The Dougie Dance, Jerking, Rejects, Get Lite, and Krumping. To
learn all of these, the students should learn each one style at a time and their foundational moves.
Bboying has four foundational moves which are called the Toprock, Go Downs, Footworks, Freezes and Power Moves. In Toprock there are lots of variations
called Cross Steps, Indian Steps, Kick Steps, Salsas etc. It also has Burns and Disses. Go Downs is a tour transition from Toprock going to Footwork. So basically, before
you do Footwork, you’re going to do Go Downs called, Knee Drops, Spinning Knee Drops, etc. Now, on Footworks we have many variations. Namely, 2steps, 3steps,
4steps, 5, 6,7,8,9,10,11,12 steps. Also those Babylove, Russian Steps, Kick Outs, 8ball, CCS, etc as well. So, usually after Footworks, either you will start Power Moves or
a Freeze. Freezes are composed of different variations and you use Freezes to hit the beat. There are Handstand Freeze, Baby Freeze, Headstand Freeze, Chair Freeze
etc. Power Moves consists of Dynamic and Crowd Pleaser moves like The Windmill, Head spin, Airfares etc.
Locking is more of a funny approach and a groovy type of dance. Here we learn Skitter Rabbit, High Fives, Don Campbell Lock, Jazz Splits, Kick Ball Change etc.
In Popping we learn Chest Pops, Fresnos, Bogaloos, Waves, Glides etc.
