I love to teach! I love to share this amazing means of expression with whoever wants to learn and respect it. It doesn't matter what level you're at, we all have to start somewhere and we can always get better. If you are looking for Choreo, HH Fitness or just to get started I'm definitely your guy. Ask as many questions as you like. Ive been teaching for over 15 years. All ages from 7-70.

A little about me. I started dancing in 2003. I connected with dancers from the DMV which led me to Breakdance practices at College Park, UMBC, JHU and more. As I got better and more skilled local crews began to take notice. I was inducted into The Deadly Venoms Crew "DVC" in 2010. The entire time training as a BBoy i was also learning and picking up other HH styles such as House, Krump and Popping. One was just not enough for me. In 2011 I competed in numerous All-Styles and Top Rock battles Nationally. In 2013 I was a showcase street performer in the production “Working America” and later that

Hi my name is Martha Ingram and I’m looking for someone to help me with lessons so that I could come up with routines for my dance team. If you think you could help me, you might be the perfect guy.

Nino is AMAZING! He did just the right mix of teaching, watching, coaching and listening and had my little guy (age 8) excited to practice and he "can't wait" for his next lesson! This wasn't our first try finding a hip hop teacher who was a good fit, but we're so glad to have found Nino!! He knows his stuff!

Dan
Sasha has been absolutely amazing. She makes online dance classes surprisingly fluid and forms a real connection with her students remotely. As someone with a serious lack of rhythm and coordination, I can say I am enjoying myself and learning a great deal! Sasha has been choreographing my wedding dance and has gone above and beyond to cut the song just right as well as rehearsing all the moves until they are perfect. Beyond that she is teaching us the fundamentals and giving us a lot to think about and practice on our own, which is highly appreciated! Would strongly recommend Sasha as your next dance instructor.

Rebecca
Keomi is amazing. She is an excellent teacher: She can adapt to even the most beginner of students, gives great instructions/cues and is bright, fun, and positive all while remaining grounded with an eye for detail.
Ellen
Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

Hip Hop has different and multiple components, but flow style, and staccato movement are my absolute Fave! Based on the music selection Hip Hop can scream powerful and forceful... the musicality is what you'll feed off of.... transitions and hard hits. Each level will challenge you in all these areas; as well as dancing between beats. Come join me... you will feel it!

"Briana was a substitute instructor a few times this past fall at District Dance Arts. Her energy, upbeat and motivational personality, style and flavor were a huge hit with both our students and parents. She is highly professional and highly organized and her choreography and music selections are tasteful and age appropriate.

In addition to hip hop, Briana has also stepped in to sub for a beg./int. ballet and jazz class and the students absolutely loved her. She is versatile, friendly, relates well with students, and is highly recommended by District Dance Arts!"

"Patricia was an absolute lifesaver! I have never felt comfortable with my dancing and my wedding was approaching. I only had two weeks because I always wait until the last minute. Patricia had me dancing comfortably and confidently after just one lesson. I just wanted to be able to keep a beat, learn a few basic moves, and she completely exceeded my expectations. Not a lot of instructors teach basic dancing and focus on choreographed moves which is not what I was looking for. Thank you, Patricia for your time, patience and for the gift of dancing!"

Private Hip Hop Dance Lessons Near You

Primarily performed to hip hop music, hip hop dance incorporates a variety of street dance moves that evolved around hip hop music's culture. Originally, a type of freestyle dance, improvisation, and freestyle competitions are still a major part of hip hop dance. The style incorporates a wide variety of moves, like popping, locking, and breaking. 

Featured on television shows like "Soul Train," the style first became popular in the 1970s. Its popularity began to grow and become more mainstream throughout the 1980s. In the '90s, the dance industry responded by standardizing and teaching the form. 

If you want to be the best dancer at a school dance or during a night out, then hip hop dance is where you should focus. Hip hop dance most closely resembles what you see used in popular culture. It's the type of dance most often performed in music videos or half-time shows for pop, R&B, and, of course, hip hop music artists. 

Why Sign Up for Hip Hop Dance Classes?

Professionally, hip hop dancers have opportunities to work as performers. They work as live backup dancers, in dance troupes, and on music video sets. Hip hop dancers can also join up with large dance teams to dance in performances and competitions. Plus, there're dance teams for dancers of all ages and abilities to join — from grade school past college. 

Hip hop dance's uniquely powerful style helps build confidence and independence in dancers. It's also very healthy. As you practice and learn new moves, you'll grow stronger, increase your flexibility, and get a great aerobic workout. Learning hip hop dance will help you get fit and stay in shape, meaning you'll enjoy overall better health. 

The Best Way to Learn Hip Hop Dance and What You'll Study in Lessons

You can easily find free hip hop dance classes and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with a private hip hop dance tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive immediate feedback and personalized instruction that you can't get online or in a larger class setting. When you study one-on-one with a hip hop dance teacher, you'll overcome challenges and learn new moves fast. 

Plus, every private hip hop dance class is unique! Your teacher will personalize everything you learn in your lessons to keep you interested, motivating, and learning at the pace and level that's best for you. For example, hip hop dance classes for adults differ, in terms of teaching methods and content, from hip hop dance lessons for children. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Hip Hop Dance

If you've never taken hip hop dance or have only had a little previous experience, then beginner lessons are right for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to the basic moves, techniques, and dance styles that define hip hop dance. In beginner lessons, your instructor might choose to cover the following:

  • Learn to find the rhythm
  • Dance conditioning: how to warm up, cool down, and stretch
  • Train your dance foundation
  • Introduction to fundamental moves and styles

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Hip Hop Dance

If you're already familiar and comfortable with the basics of hip hop dance, then you'll be most comfortable in intermediate classes. In these lessons, you'll build upon your basic knowledge and skills and begin mastering increasingly complex dance moves and choreography. As you train, you'll grow stronger, increase balance, and become more flexible. Your intermediate teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Increase body control and awareness
  • Master combination dance moves
  • Introduction to incorporating breakdancing 
  • Learn professional choreography 

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Hip Hop Dance

If you can pop and lock with the best of them and have been practicing hip hop dance for a while, then advanced lessons are right for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to improve your style and technique, in addition to trying out new moves and choreography with a professional. Content covered in advanced lessons really depends on the student's individual interests and goals, but your hip hop dance teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Practice new freestyle techniques and strategies
  • Learn to choreograph your own moves
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance preparation

How to Find a Hip Hop Dance Teacher Near You

If you think private hip hop classes are for you, then you'll need a teacher. Finding a private hip hop dance tutor on TakeLessons is easy. With a quick search, you can find pages of highly qualified and experienced teachers who offer lessons both in-person and online. We recommend looking through several profiles and reading reviews left by other dance students, before choosing a teacher. 

The cost of hip hop dance lessons varies from teacher to teacher, but most charge time-based rates per lesson. You'll find that investing in private classes pays off quickly because there's no better way to learn hip hop dance! You'll pick up new moves and techniques quickly and be able to move onto more challenging choreography fast.
