Hip Hop Dance

Each day begins with a conditioning warm-up along with deep stretches leading into classes. DENA RIZZO RETURNS! Her expertise, and knowledge of hip-hop in the dance industry is unparalleled.

Dena has a unique ability to powerfully influence and inspire the students she is around in all facets of dance and life, bringing the best out of each student.
Rap is a great tool to build self-confidence, develop literacy skills and hone creative writing techniques. Our classes provide students an opportunity to creatively and critically express themselves. They are encouraged to focus their writing on issues that they care about or that impact them in some way, such as the current pandemic, street crime, race relations, bullying, or just being a teenager. With assistance in rhyming, structure and flow, creative rap students channel their thoughts to the lyric sheet and perform their raps with beats and tracks.
