Intensives-Private lessons-workshops-dance camps

  Professional, competitive, & recreational dancers from around and outside of the United States have trained under me, adopting my unique methods to form an identity while learning hip hop & street dance. Choreographers and teachers as well have trained with me to practice effective methods for educating within hip hop without diluting the styles in a dance studio setting. Branching outward from my live workshops, my consultation work & training material has become a regular resource for teachers all over the world.

What makes this program so different is the emphasis on education while honoring what makes hip hop the art form that it is.

 Most importantly, it is an invaluable and extraordinary environment for growth, self-empowerment and success.

What are the essential ingredients of a street dancer?

A  strong, well educated street dancer should be able to trace their movement back to the proper foundation.  Without realizing it, many dancers end up with movement that has a foundation closer to jazz, ballet or other styles. I train dancers to understand that there is a range of dance styles they need to get familiar with first.  Creative approaches and fresh musical influences evolve their vocabulary from the starting point of hip hop or related styles.  Students of mine understand these styles through and through. That is our starting point to create even more modern styled choreography. Work that abides by the rules of the genre, and work that is honest whether it is aiming to be true to the art form, or only influenced by a genre.

Hip Hop is Many things

I will not bring my hip hop class to you.

My classes are structured for a school year of learning & weekly progress. With guest work, I design a class experience that understands our brief time together.  Keeping in mind the limited hours we have to train or set choreography, the lessons given are made to maximize the quality of information a student can receive in a short term class.

Students leave my class with TOOLS to continue training.. long after I am gone.

Lasting, valuable techniques to boost student creativity, performance, & understanding of this art form.  Movement utilized in my lessons are made to compliment any hip hop program as it establishes my philosophy on dance. Most importantly, students in my program experience empowerment, encouragement, freedom, & professionalism.
