New class – Teen Hip Hop

Your kids are gonna love this teen hip hop class! Hard beats, cool moves and a class full of energy!

Ilenia teaches LA Style hip hop which is a mix of movement originating from contemporary, modern, lyrical and mixed with the Hip Hop “New School” style.

It’s based on a “fast and slow” technique, which results in fast changes between very slow and smooth movement to very fast, powerful and rigid movement. The essence is to make the choreography match the lyrics, and tell the story that represents the meaning of the song.

The class is held on Sundays at 6pm – 7pm, AED 65 per class.

Suitable for ages 12 to 16 years.
