Description: For our youngest hip hop dancers, we provide a fun environment for developing self-awareness and body control. The kids learn basic concepts for arm gestures and poses, foot work and floor work. For the 5-7 yrs group, teamwork is a primary theme. The students work in small groups to practice skills or choreography, ultimately, creating the foundation for accountability, communication and leadership. Through kids’ hip hop, your little ones will learn how to groove out to pop and hip hop beats while also reinforcing life skills that support successful engagement in other communities and activities.
Instructor Bio: Vince Johnson - I am founder and director of MoveMakers Philly. I am also head youth karate instructor at Martial Posture studio. At the age of 12, I discovered dance. My first experiences dancing were in social environments with family and friends, dancing to hip hop and R&B. At 14, I had the privilege of meeting professional hip hop dancers based in Philly, many were original members of the iconic company, Rennie Harris: Puremovement. From this point, I belonged to a number of dance crews and eventually became a dancer for Puremovement, which gave me the opportunity to tour internationally, learn about the theater and deepen my knowledge of hip hop movement. After Puremovement, I expanded my study of dance to release technique, contact improvisation and Ballet. Currently, most of my focus as a movement practitioner is devoted to the study of Artistic Gymnastics. I helped to establish the first hip hop program at the Rock School of Dance Education in center city Philadelphia. I have taught dance workshops nationally and abroad to youth and adults. I have 14 years of experience as a martial arts instructor. In competitive martial arts, I have coached more than 5 world champions and dozens of elite competitors.
