Puppetry & Hip Hop Dance – Ages 5-7
This Hip Hop class gets everyone moving and having fun by learning some cool new moves. We begin with a great warm-up, learn a dance combination and then end with a little breakdancing. Afterwards, we work of puppet construction and then movement to add more imagination and creative play to our dances. This class is a great introduction to Hip Hop, working on strength, coordination, rhythm and happy kids!
Puppetry & Hip Hop Dance – Ages 8 & up
This Hip Hop class gets everyone moving and having fun by learning some cool new moves while also learning how to make objects move to create puppetry from everyday objects. We begin with a great warm-up, learn a dance combination and then end with breakdancing or let the kids create a number together. The process opens the opportunity up for the children to become leaders and work in groups, expanding the imagination for developing new ideas and concepts for construction through puppet art. While great for all levels, Puppetry & Hip Hop works on strength, coordination, rhythm and individual expression!
