This is a fun, high-energy program where students learn the fundamentals of hip-hop dance and choreography. Popular with both girls and boys, our program promotes artistic expression, movement and teamwork in a fun, musical environment. Hip-hop dance instructors choreograph a routine that students learn and practice throughout the session in preparation for our hip-hop dance competition! Family and friends are invited. Youth ages 5 and above are invited to enroll in this dance program. Hip-hop dance classes meet once a week.
Classes: Coaches choreograph a routine which all students learn and practice throughout the session in preparation for our Competition. Each week students continue to learn and add on new choreography to their routine. By expanding their knowledge of a choreographed dance they will learn dance technique, memorization, showmanship, variety of street dance styles and more.
What to Wear to Class: There are no requirements for practice attire. It’s recommended to wear comfortable t-shirt and bottoms. Something you can move around and an athletic sneaker (No Flip flops or high heels).
Competition: Our competitions run 4 times a year, one at the end of each session. Teams and coaches will show off their choreographed routine, which all students learn and practiced throughout the session. Family and friends are invited to attend. Students compete for awards and all participants go home with a participation competition trophy!
Merchandise: If your child will be attending competition at the end of the session, a YC t-shirt is the required uniform to perform in. (Each coach is able to add accessories or vote on in class themes to enhance their performance; these items are not sold by YC. They are purchased by parents.) All Items are available for purchase online. All sales are final, no refunds. Please call Young Champions office for any discrepancies within 48 hours upon receipt of merchandise.
