This camp will focus on everything HIP HOP!  We are very excited to be bringing back an amazing hip hop camp with some amazing teachers this summer that will put the attention of growth on dancers’ musicality, isolations, rhythm, phrasing and so much more!  We strongly believe that no matter what particular style of dance one may “feel best” at, it is necessary and most beneficial for a dancer to train in multiple styles including Hip Hop..  This hip hop camp is going to be a blast.  It is designed to help dancers grow not only in this particular style of dance, but in so many other areas of their craft.   During these 3 days, we will exercise dancers musicality, isolations, body awareness, confidence, ability to pick up choreography, freestyle, and overall we hope to push each individual dancer to his/her next level, no matter age or ability.
