HIP-HOP & MODERN DANCE CAMP
Each day will include both a Hip-Hop and Modern Dance section.
The Hip-Hop portion will include isolations, popping, locking, tutting and exercises to build strength and flexibility, all serving as the groundwork for great choreography.
We will also incorporate an element of free-style. This will be a fun, non-intimidating experience as we work on individual style and flavor. It’s a high-energy camp with upbeat music to enhance our expression and attitude!
The Modern Dance portion will include a warm-up to build strength, stimulate core connections and body awareness, followed by phrase work focusing on directional and weight changes, rhythm, and Laban Fundamentals (i.e. time, space, effort, etc.) and finish with some great innovative choreography to keep students’ minds and body in tip-top shape.
Students will become more self-confident in their ability to create and more comfortable collaborating and expressing ideas - key leadership skills. Students will experience an overall sense of fluidity, strength, and confidence in their everyday movement.
They will expand their movement vocabulary, sweat, laugh and have fun! The last day of camp, parents are invited for the last half hour for a 30 minute presentation showing what the students have learned.
Attire is dance shorts, capris or leggings and snug top. Bare feet for Modern, and clean sneakers not worn outside for hip-hop.
