How Would You Like a Course For Competition Judges?
This latest course is similar to my "Teacher Training Seminars" with a bit more focus on the aspect of "observing" Hip Hop. Choreographers and Non-Hip Hop judges can all benefit from this course as we cover the distinct differences between Hip Hop and commercial, jazz, trendy movement it sometimes gets confused with. We'll also dig into the structure and possible rules within techniques for Hip Hop, Breaking, Popping, and more. Want to see if we can do a live training for your studio or organization? Send me a message today to discuss pricing and dates!
The Comix Method is brand new for 2021 as the official certification course for learning my approach to hip hop programs, classes, & choreography. This program is available to teachers worldwide and serves as a massive education & ever expanding library of resources. My Workshop Videos & E-books are just scratching the surface. With this certificate, you get a full education in the method I have been training teachers to utilize for the last decade!

My name is John "Comix" Barrella. I am a dance educator from New Jersey. As a full time artist, I spend my days instructing dancers, choreographing internationally, filming dance dancepts, consulting for dance teachers, performing, and directing my professional dance company.

I want to continue on that journey with every dancer and hip hop head out there . As you explore my site, feel free to reach out to me at any time.
