If you have a child aged between 7-12 years that has a passion for dance, enjoys learning hip hip dance moves and skills, loves to perform and has a positive and can do attitude, then this is the class for them!

Students will learn hip hop routines whist working towards their very own showcase for their family and friends. (mid year/ end of year).

This class builds strength, stamina and style through contemporary hip-hop movement.
This class will run every Tuesday during the school term for 8 weeks.

No experience needed, just bring a ‘can do’ attitude and a willingness to learn. Wear comfortable clothing i.e sweatpants, t-shirt, sneakers and a water bottle are a MUST!
