The school of Cool. Build Confidence, Strength, Agility, Coordination, Creativity, Rhythm, and STYLE. We warm up, play movement games, dissect breakdance moves, learn foundation, freestyle concepts, Power-moves, work with partners, battle each other, and work on shows.
We perform around town and enter competitions as a school. Kids get to have fun, build skills, get prizes, and make friends.

ADULT BBOY / BGIRL CLASS – Fridays 8:30pm, Destiny Arts
Less about choreography, more about rhythm drills, physical training, drilling out concepts and variations of movement, analyzing style, and understanding the context and history of Bboying within Hip Hop. The teaching method is progressive from easy to difficult.
We end each class with a big open freestyle cypher. Advanced dancers in the scene who already have experience and want to UP their game or train for competition are encouraged and welcome to attend, share, analyze, and document knowledge, teaching methods, mechanics, dynamics, etc.
