2 hours Hip Hop workshop Rizqi and Rashaad (UA)
Price: 130 kr
To establish a working understanding of the foundations and techniques that comprise the ever-changing face of hip hop dance culture. A cross-city and global survey of hip hop dance communities will be examined from the NYC boogie boy, to the West Coast freestyle head, LA industry-style, French/Euro new-style dancers. Students will have a working freestyle, choreography, and research-based approach to being a well-rounded Hip Hop dancer.
Mainline classes will emphasize the shifts in Hip Hop music and movement, battle- cypher culture, and global socio-economic factors that contribute to the evolution of its expression; building on the understanding that with shifts in hip hop music and social environments comes a shift in the movement aesthetic.
This course encourages students to become influencers and active participants in their communities, not limited to the mainstream trends but to mainline cultural shifts, to follow the authentic path of hip-hop culture, that is to embody the notion of “moving-intelligence” (hop-hip as defined by KRS-1). For this reason, the course will require each student to build on the following skill-sets: Freestyle, Choreography, Innovation (Self-discovery), and Research.
The House That Jack Built
1,5 hours House workshop w/ Junious (UA)
Price: 125 kr
“The House That Jack Built is not a fairytale. It is the House Music experience instructed and demonstrated thru House Dance and cultural enlightenment.
Since it’s origin in the underground dance scene of the late 1970’s, House Dance has evolved into one of the largest dance forms in the world. Jack is a reference to Jacking; the dance recognized as the foundation of House Dance Culture. Jacking sparked the creative minds that would eventually engineer the movement influenced by many dance styles, but a true descendent of none. This freedom has provided a spiritual home for those who wish to grow artistically and culturally in House Music.” – urbanartistry.org
