Street Dance is a relatively new addition to our timetable. It is very much the dance craze of the moment due to dance videos, television programmes and the current success of street dance groups such as Diversity who competed in and won ‘Britains Got Talent 2009’.
Students are taught street dance techniques encompassing Hip Hop, Lockin’, Poppin’, Breakin’ and Wavin’. Classes are taught by Rachel Palmer, who has developed her street dance skills through Robert Hylton’s training programme Skills and Drills and lockin’ teacher Fred the Realness Folkes.
Chart and hip hop music is used for classes, it is a great, fun, funky and energetic class.
It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.
