Summer 2022 Hip Hop and Street Style Dance Intensive



Directed by Andres Ramirez, in partnership with The Funk Box Dance Studio

Taught by Andres Ramirez, King Charles, and Kelli Forman

Students will learn foundational movements and techniques of hip-hop and street style, alongside the cultural meaning and significance of these moves. Students will delve deeper into the world of hip hop with class discussions and lessons on history, music, art, and culture. The emphasis in this program is on social dancing and creativity.  The program will create an encouraging space to try out what you learn and most importantly show off your unique style and personality while freestyling in daily ciphers. Styles will include beginner’s breaking, party grooves, and footwork. 

Each day starts with a motivational fitness session in the park to get students in a positive headspace to push themselves for a day of learning. This is 8:00 – 8:45am, and is optional. Classes at Pulse start at 9am. 

Program culminates with a Celebration Jam on Saturday, July 16 at 3PM. This is an all-styles battle for the students to show off what they’ve learned, as well as invite dancers around the area to battle and cypher.
