"This is not just a dance school in Harlow, this is a community. The directors of Hip Hop Pop are two of the kindest, talented and most generous people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It does not matter your level of technical ability, this school fosters team work, social skills, pride, confidence and resilience in all of its students. I can honestly say they're supportive of all their students regardless of age, gender, race and other discriminatory factors which plague society.

"Love love love all the classes at Hip Hop Pop. It’s a friendly and welcoming atmosphere from Jen and Vic. Classes really get my passion, energy and motivation going while having a laugh and fun.

Jen helps us constantly improve on moves, techniques, history and names of all types of street dance. I would recommend anyone to give the classes a go from beginners to advanced and any age."

Siobhan - Adult student and parent of student attending our street dance classes in Harlow (Google Review)


"Hip Hop Pop is a fantastic dance school, and for me and my daughter we are so glad we found it.

Over the years my daughter has made some amazing friends, many of whom I’m sure she will stay in touch with for a long time and her dancing has come on leaps and bounds under the direction of directors Jen and Vic and the rest of the team.

I too have met many lovely people through chaperoning and we have both had the privilege of being part of the amazing Hip Hop Pop family"
