This style of dance was born in the Bronx in the late 1970s, and had gone global by the 1980s. The namae came from “hip” meaning “trendy”, and literally “hopping” to the rhythm of the music, which was usually rap music. Contrary to popular opinion, you CAN have Christian Hip Hop! There has been an explosion of songs in the genres of Christian rap and Hip Hop music, and it is possible to develope choreography that is God-honoring!
Because the body isolations and movements require a higher level of body awareness, this class is for Levels 6 and up, and Jazz is a co-requisite to enroll in this class. So we invite you to join this style of dance that truly explores feeling the beat of the music!
