About Our Hip Hop Dance Classes
- Our hip hop dance classes for adults are genuine beginner classes. You won't be placed in a class with more experienced dancers that force the class to move faster than you're ready for.
- Your adult hip hop dance class starts with a thorough warm up to loosen up, build core strength, and improve body control.
- We will break everything down into easy-to-learn steps so you can master the choreography.
