This December, Artist-Teacher Alex “Swift” Almaraz leads us in an Intro to HipHop workshop. We will go through the process of going over the history of the movements, connecting the dance with music and generating our own narrative through the movement. By connecting our dance routine to the music this will develop a new level of awareness that will stem into HipHop Freestyle. The combinations of HipHop movement, music, and your story will provide an incredible experience that embraces the full essence of this culture. No dance experience necessary!
