During this 2 day workshop we will take students through the evolutionary process using their bodies and rhythm leading up to the appearance of modern hip hop. We will explore dances from the motherland that heavily influenced hip hop dance as we see it today. We will dip and turn into Modern & Jazz dance then explode into a new era with break dancing, popping and locking.
