Hip Hop Classes (ages 5-adult)

About the Hip Hop Program:
Our hip hop classes are offered at various times during the week to students beginning at age 5. Hip Hop is a style of dance that is more technically free, funky, and a derivative of jazz and African dance. Hip Hop steps are closely tied with those seen in current music videos and "pop culture". Like Jazz, the music is highly energetic and the movement is more free. We promote a family friendly atmosphere at LAAPA, so only music with appropriate lyrics and messages is used in the classes. Students in our Hip Hop classes come away with a great sense of rhythm and style. A variety of positions, techniques, and terminology are introduced and reinforced within each class. The culmination of the student's hard work is showcased at our Winter and Spring recitals through creative and original choreography.
Registration for Hip Hop Classes:
Hip Hop students who are brand new to dance are welcome to enroll at any time during the year with the exception of recital preparation months (November, December, May, & June). During these months, we are happy to pre-register you for the next session.
