Students start by connecting with music. Using games and play to foster a relaxed social environment, students get comfortable moving in sync with rhythm and employing basic footwork. Once they learn foundation moves like two-steps and grooves, students next practice isolations-head, chest, hips-to improve body control and build towards complex moves such as popping and locking. As we develop choreography and sequences, our groups learn to tell story through movement. In time they add a personal spin; creating their own routines. Jasmine will tailor techniques and routines to students’ interests and abilities.
