Course Description

Exploration of Hip Hop Dance as an art form that offers a limitless way to express oneself in human movement. Primary emphasis is on developing skills and techniques of the basic Hip Hop movement vocabulary supplemented by instruction in Hip Hop dance history, terminology and the principles of time, space, and energy. Classroom physical practice will focus on anatomically correct body alignment, awareness of the body in space, musicality, strength, stamina, and flexibility. Care of the body and conditioning for dance is also emphasized.

Students will be evaluated during the first week of class to determine if they should place into DNCA-1721 rather than DNCA-171 as this is an introductory class intended for those with no formal Hip Hop dance experience.
