The truth about hip-hop dance for tweens and middle schoolers

We understand that there are stereotypes for some hip-hop dance classes. However, with the right teacher and hip-hop class, your dancer can be dancing to the beats.

Here is what to look for in tween hip hop dance classes and what Dance To EvOLvE focuses upon:

 

  • Does the teacher use age-appropriate music?
  • Is the teacher a positive role model that your dancer can look up to?
  • How does the teacher go above and beyond to incorporate life skills during the hip-hop dance class for tweens or in the middle school hip-hop dance class?
  • Is the movement in the hip-hop class age-appropriate for children or tweens? And is it about having fun?
  • Overall, does the tweens hip-hop dance class you are considering seem professional and family-friendly?

We all know that teen years are often fraught with uncertainty. Hip-hop classes can do wonders to pull kids out of their shells. After participating in the right hip hop dance class, dancers should be sweaty, happy, and self-assured from learning something that presented the right amount of challenge mixed with fun.

 

Some other fun information about hip-hop:

  • Hip-hop is not a studio-evolved style and saw no formal beginning. Instead, it was developed on the street in urban neighborhoods. 
  • Black and Latino Americans were the creators of uprock and breaking in the Bronx of New York, whereas Black Americans in California created popping, roboting, boogalo,o and locking.
  • Hip-hop dance became widely known in the 1970s after the first professional street-based crews formed in the USA.
  • In the 1980s, hip-hop social dancing started to develop, with novelty and fad dances such as the Roger Rabbit, the Cabbage Patch, and the Worm becoming widely popularized. Who can forget these fun dances?!
