Hip Hop - Popping - Locking - Breakin
Are you here for this?
One of the biggest reasons I travel the country is to deliver this course to you. As we all do things a bit differently these days, I'm offering another zoom training course for dance teachers. If you're not familiar with the details of this course I run, definitely take a peak at my TEACHER SEMINARS page. This is the virtual equivalent of my main program, maintaining much of the exercises and information I'm known to give during these courses.
Q: I was in your fall virtual seminar. Is this the same thing?
A: Yes and no. This is the same program, with new content. Where you may find some similarities are in the Q&A portion of the seminar, where I will address topics, techniques, or dance terms by request. Otherwise, this will cover mostly new content!
Q: If I can't make the class time, will there be a video available?
A: Yes. Any registered customer gets a full copy of the entire course PLUS an exclusive discount code for e-books, videos, and more in my online store...even if you cannot make it to the class.
Q: Who is this class for?
A: Just about anyone. Teachers with little to no access to hip hop information get a ton of new content. Hip Hop dancers get education techniques and lessons in class structure. Studio owners get to understand the makings of an educational hip hop program.
Q: I purchased one of your videos. Is this the same thing?
A: The main difference here is the interaction. In my books and videos I am feeding you the information. Here, we get to discuss & refine it to make sure you get everything you need from th resources you own.
This course will provide techniques and terms in a range of styles ( Popping & isolations, hip hop, breakin, & more) that will aid in exercises/games/choreography for all class types.

In My Education Method
My work combines the world of hip hop & other genres with the standards & structure of dance schools. Training programs I offer give insight into how I run my classes for an educational experience that honors the school curriculum without diluting hip hop. This summer, I will be expanding my training program into a certification, where teachers can fully adopt my methods & bring my approach to hip hop education to their home studio!
