Open Level Hip-Hop
OPEN LEVEL HIP-HOP with Lex Ramirez
Thursdays / 6:30-7:30PM
This class mixes elements of Hip-Hop, street styles and commercial dance to create short combos to your favorite new and classic hits. Designed for dancers of all levels, the goal is to create a supportive space to explore your passion for dance- whether you are new to it, returning after a break, ready to move up from the Intro Course or want to get a nice workout! In addition to choreography, we will focus on texture, detail, musicality, and performance techniques. Classes include a short warm-up followed by a breakdown of choreography. Drop-ins are welcome, however, attending class consecutively is encouraged for seeing improvement!
