WHAT WILL YOU LEARN
AT HIP HOP POP'S DANCE SCHOOL HARLOW?
You may be wanting to ask us, 'do you teach Hip Hop or Street Dance at Hip Hop Pop?' Well the answer is; hip hop is a style of street dance. There are many styles of street dance including hip hop, house, breaking, locking and krump to name but a few. So at Hip Hop Pop Harlow Dance School, we teach many styles of street dance under the street dance umbrella, including Hip Hop. Want to find out more about what 'hip hop' is, it's more than just 'dance'? Have a read of our answer
In our classes you will learn: Foundations - dance grooves, moves and steps that create a dictionary of the absolute 'must-knows'. Variations - how to explore your foundations and create different versions and ways to express these moves giving you an incredible vocabulary of street dance skills. Combinations (aka routines / choreography) - using inspiration from your foundation and variation skills - create and / or learn choreography (routines) to really get your teeth into.
We don't just teach 'routines' at Hip Hop Pop, routines are fun for the short time during class that you're learning them, but what then? There's not much to take away to help you progress - That's why we do much more than just 'teach a routine'! Of course you will learn routines in classes, but we focus on giving you the knowledge and skill to take each and every movement within those routines and explore them, understand them and progress with them AFTER the class, AFTER you've learnt the 'routine'. All classes are customised to deliver these goals at varying rates and by different methods tailored to your age and ability.
You'll learn performance skills, how to make your performance 'pop' and wow your audience, how to express using dance, how to polish your performance, how to communicate with your audience, how to find your x-factor, we teach it all at our street dance classes in Harlow.

At Hip Hop Pop we'll open your mind to a world of street dance step possibilities
At our dance school Harlow we give students the tools to get creative with moves and variations and understand them properly, so they can open their minds to a world of possibility in every step and take ownership of their own variations and creations. Yes you'll learn 'dance routines' with us, but you'll also gain an understanding of the moves and styles within those routines so that you can get creative!
"Enjoyable cultural experiences for everyone"
At Hip Hop Pop you'll understand way more about a step than just how to do it!
Street Dance is an amazing and unique genre, the styles within it are born from natural cultures around the world, a moment in time, a key piece of history. Every step / element of street dance has a story, a name, a reason why it's there and we love sharing our knowledge of that, and paying homage to cultures these the amazing styles and steps were born in within our classes. You'll feel great holding the knowledge as to why you're doing that step and what it's called, as well as just simply 'doing it' Find out more about what exactly street dance is here
