At JA Performing Arts, Clacton we hold We hold Hip Hop/Street classes from 3.5 years through to senior level.
Our Hip Hop/Street classes are fun and energetic. From old school Hip Hop, to waacking and commercial, we aim to cover many different styles. Our team makes sure they use relevant music to engage our students and we find these classes are a great starting point for performance-based work.
Our Hip hop/Street classes allow the performer to have a sense of freedom, whilst still demanding a structured technique. It is a fun and rewarding dance style.
3 – 4 years
This is where we learn the basics. All of our classes are structured and we aim to teach the students to learn a little about their bodies and how they move, to their favourite tracks. We find the minis love to use their expressions and at times… a little bit of sass! All of our classes are tailored for all genders and this performance based class is so much fun for everyone.
4 – 7 years
In these classes, we start to look at different styles and how we use our bodies to perform different movements. From “big fish little fish cardboard box” to “the running man” we make sure we are focussing on learning through expression and story. We start to look at some tricks with the children, this is always a class favourite. This is always such a popular class, so don’t delay in booking your space!
8 – 13 years
In these classes, we start to focus on strength and lines. We are advocates of physical and mental well being and believe that our performers need to be strong to execute the choreography effectively. We start to look at slightly more complex tricks and choreography. We theme each piece of show choreography too, from boxing to Marvel!
We start to look at more diverse forms of Hip Hop in this age bracket. We like to teach our students to be well rounded performers and will give them every opportunity to experience varying styles. We focus on warming up our bodies and fitness at the start of every class and make sure we tailor this to every ability. Always using the most relevant songs, this class is a great way to immerse in moments and music whilst keeping fit and healthy. We encourage students to add their own style and personality on top of the choreography, which makes this class fun and expressive, even for beginners.
