Hip hop is a subculture and movement that sprung up from the South Bronx in New York City from the melting pot of many minority communities, mainly African American, Puerto Rican and Jamaican minority groups in the 70s. Hip Hop as a dance style refers to the street dances that are performed to hip hop music or have evolved from hip hop culture. The most well-known styles that fall within hip hop include breaking, locking and popping. Some others that you might have heard of include krumping, tutting and boogaloo. When we say we teach proper hip hop foundations, we mean it. Our hip hop class needs to be distinguished from pop dancing.

Back to Exercise. Whether you like to jump or jive, tap or tango, shake your hips or your booty, dancing is one of the most enjoyable ways to get moving. Regular dancing is great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and beating stress. There is also evidence that regular dancing can improve heart health in older people. One of the best things about dancing is that while you're having fun moving to music and meeting new people, you're getting all the health benefits of a good workout.
