What is it?
Old School Hip Hop originated in the late 70's in New York and was danced to funk and old school Hip Hop music. By the 80's, Hip Hop had evolved to also include popping & locking. These three elements (break dancing, popping and locking) are the basis of old school Hip Hop. New School Hip Hop evolved in the 90's, inspired by break dancing but including more upright dancing instead of floor movements. This class begins with a short energetic warm-up. You will then be taught a fun hip hop routine as well as working on freestyle skills.
