If you want to know how to dance hip hop better than your current skills, just think of Kanye’s song lyrics: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The lyrics basically tell you what you need to know.
Learning how to hip hop dance like a pro WILL take hard work, just like anything else in life that’s worth having. One of the most important dance lessons I’ll stress today is to PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL. Take a look at this short video:
Hip Hop Dance & Breakdance Basics
That was footage from some of last week’s hip hop classes. Fun times!
But you’ll notice we could look even better if we paid more attention to the details: where my head bobs, how high my arms swing, the counts I get down/off the floor, etc.
As a professional hip hop dancer, if you’re not paying attention to the little things, it can make the group look sloppy and under rehearsed. Would you agree?
** You can learn from more hip hop videos on my YouTube Channel.
That’s just one tip for today. There’s lots to learn so I’ll post more “How To Dance Hip Hop Tips” on a regular basis. Hey, it’s free advice! Leave a comment right now and let me know what you think.
