Hip Hop at Rambert

Join our upbeat, energetic class which visits the foundations and grooves of Hip Hop for teen beginners. 

Hip Hop for Teen Beginners

Does the beat of your favourite song just make you want to move? Want to learn the foundations of a dance style anyone can do? Then give our Teen Beginners Hip Hop class a try!

Teen Beginners Hip Hop is taught by dancer and choreographer Kloé Dean, who describes the class as ‘upbeat, fun, energetic and informative. We visits the foundations and grooves of Hip Hop, practicing and developing a hip hop dance vocabulary which is then used to practice free styling and creating choreography.’

A lesson on Hip Hop from Kloé

‘Hip Hop is a culture made up of 4 pillars:

  • Break Dancing
  • Djing
  • MCing
  • Graffiti

‘It originated in the Bronx, New York in the 1970s. Hip Hop as a dance style is made up of down beats as the rock and base of the dance then accompanied by grooves, isolation, polyrhythms and soul.

‘Anyone can learn and do Hip Hop dance – that is the beauty of it.

‘I love the music, the culture, the art, the realness, the communication and exchange between people within it.

It’s an outlet, a chance to exchange and share with other people, develop strength and fitness and develop knowledge in the hip hop culture as a whole.’

Our dancers think you should try it too!

At Rambert our professional company may perform contemporary dance, but they come from a variety of backgrounds and training. Liam Francis started his career as a Hip Hop dancer with ZooNation and thinks everyone should experience this dance style.
