Rhythm and Hip Hop
To those that have the music inside:
Its movements are evident in the name. Hip hop. Full physicality. An errant bug that enters the ears to burrow through the brain and into the blood stream, clicking vibrato and rattling melodically until it reaches the heart where it divides its eggs evenly among the four ventricle pockets to be hatched and fanned out to the rest of the body, kicking and thrashing in their swim and occasionally grazing the smooth interior flesh that manifests in ticklish throbs across the exterior skin. Hip hop dance is exterior. It is an amplified translation of intangible emotions. It is the ecstatic jolts that manipulate the infestation into neat bunches and upward flailing that expels the bugs from the body and whips them around in the breath of exertion.
Hip hop cannot be contained. Even within the formality of a studio it is wild and freeing and cathartic. The studio turns inside out and so do the students, improving and refining learned techniques, stretching and centering to stay limber and ready, using the structure to break the mold. There’s technique and there’s style in hip hop in the same way there’s memorization and improvisation. There’s exercise and relief in the same way there’s personality and unity. Hip hop dance is, in short, a work-out.
This is the kind of attitude the staff and instructors have at Dance Zone USA. Hip hop is a popular discipline, high energy and invigorating. It is a release of pent up energy that improves health, flexibility, balance and coordination. For kids, it makes an active lifestyle easier, combining exercise with expression. Hip hop dance is a positive force and our world ranked instructors understand this, teaching appropriate and empowering choreography with precise eyes, thoughtful words and a sympathetic ear. So get started and stop holding it in.
