How to Learn Hip Hop Dance?

Do you or your kid want to learn hip hop dance? There are various types of dance forms, with variety of steps; from toe-tapping to backstepping to the groundwork found in break dancing.

While dance studios are growing in popularity nationwide, most beginners still feel most comfortable practicing at home using hip-hop videos. There are plenty of online hip hop dance class for kids and adults where you can learn hip hop dance moves.

If you have successfully find the hip dance studio and you're ready to proceed further here are few tips to consider:

Wear comfortable shoes: 

Fortunately, unlike other dancing genres, a hip hop dance class does not require specialty shoes. Any type of athletic shoe that won't mark the studio floor will work. 

As a general rule, stay away from thin canvas shoes as they often don't offer enough support and cushion. A comfortable, supportive pair of sneakers (preferably ones that are already in your closet!) is all you will need to get off on the right foot.

Pay attention to your clothing:

Of course, beyond shoes, clothing plays a critical role in the success of any dancing session. Once again, this particular dancing genre often allows students to take items already found in their closets.

You'll need no specialized clothing. Sweatpants and other loose-fitting, comfortable pants paired with a casual top (even a tank or t-shirt) make excellent choices for classes. 

Stay hydrated:

Your little one will surely work up a thirst from all the movements during the session. Bring a water bottle (one that closes tightly to eliminate the risk of spilling) for him to use throughout his time in the studio so he stays hydrated and feels well while training.
