Morgan Thompson American Dance Institute Hip Hop Instructor

Morgan Thompson

Dancing has been an integral part of Morgan Thompson's life since he was 8 years old. He's studied ballet, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, and Hip-Hop.

It became clear that hip hop was his strength and he audition for and performed with Breaking Point Dance Company (BPDC) for five years. He's since been a part of many performing companies in Washington: DC9, Next Edition, Bad Kids, and Kontagious. The latter most company I started teaching for at the age of 16.

He then attended and was graduated from Eckerd College with a degree in Arts for Theater. While there, he maintained his teaching focus at FYI dance studio. He also taught at a school for underprivileged children and provided after school classes. Upon graduating Morgan made  his way back home to the great Pacific Northwest and is spreading the love of dance once more.

"I loved learning the basic fundamentals of hip hop, says Morgan, and I pass that on to my students. In my class we’ll not only learn hip hop, but we’ll learn about the different styles of hip hop: Popping, Locking, Krumping, Breaking, Modern Studio and more. I love bringing positivity and energy to my classes so prepare to wake up and get moving when you’re with me!"

Morgan's been teaching Hip Hop for American Dance Institute since 2018.
