If your child wants to learn hip hop dance, we will teach them the best elements of this very fun, stylish and 'hip' dance style.

  • Hip Hop I.5: For students who have had 4-6 months of recent hip hop dance training.
  • Hip Hop II: Have been studying Hip Hop recently and or consistently for a year of more.

The teacher is the determinant factor...

"Just as in the best public and private schools, the quality of the teacher in a class room and dance studio determines the quality of the student's class experience. American Dance Institute's teachers are the best. I know because I work very hard to find, mentor and retain them."  Elizabeth Chayer, Founder & Director
