BEG/INT HIP-HOP CHOREO with Lex Ramirez
Tuesdays / 8-9:30PM
*Begins January 14, 2020.
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 beginner and intermediate adults, 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. Attending consecutive classes is highly encouraged for seeing improvement, however, all levels are welcomed! If you want to take your dancing to the next level, please ask the instructor about Drop Squad, a dance crew for beginner and intermediate adult dancers—no auditions required.
Note: This class is a drop-in class and does not require pre-registration! If you pre-registered for a Wednesday night hip-hop class, that’s Intro to Hip-Hop which meets next door in Kawasaki.
