Our hip-hop program starts at the age of 5 years. For the 5 to 6 year olds we use a fully structured curriculum. This program teaches the students the beginning moves of hip hop using names for the steps that the young children can relate to. In using these familiar terms it helps the young students remember the steps and sequences much more easily. As the child gets older the speed and difficulty increases.
At the age of 7 years and up the teacher begins to add the different styles of hip-hop as we see in the movies and music videos. The hip-hop techniques we offer in class are wacking, stepping, jazz funk, popping and breaking. The program also emphasizes a strong concentration on musical memory.
At Elite Feet we do edit all our hip-hop music to be age appropriate during class and recital.
