Hiphop/street dance has its roots in the 1970s and made popular in the USA. The dance style stems from the hiphop culture - it includes popping/locking/tricks/breakdancing.


Hiphop/street is a hugely popular dance style at The Academy, with girls and boys of all ages taking part. Our program has a logical progression with younger students learning the foundations of hiphop with a lyrical component. As they progress through the levels, they take on harder and more progressive street style (this is to ensure they get the widest range of style as well as protect their safety so they don't do any work that is beyond their ability).
