Find your rhythm & flow with help from an internationally-contracted hiphop dancer!
International touring dance artist with 10 years teaching experience with multiple certifications/awards. Hip Hop is one of my specialties and has been a part of my life for the past 15 years! Catered to your level, this class will touch on the basics of many different styles of hip hop - common-style, krump, house, old school, commercial, locking, and contemporary hip hop. Follow along with some basic groove steps for whichever style you would like to focus on (or some groove steps for all of the styles), and learn some movement phrases created by me to practice or refine your skills.
About Ellen S.

Hi! My name is Ellen and I am a professional dance artist with roots in NYC and have recently relocated to Phoenix. Since gaining my BFA in Dance Performance from East Carolina University in 2013, I have toured with companies around the world (U.S., Germany, Israel) to perform and teach as a professional contemporary dance artist. I have been dancing for 27 years and I have been teaching for 10 years. I have taught a very wide range of ages, levels and styles: young students (4-18), university-level students, young adults, middle-aged adults, and seniors. I am a certified instructor of Nadine Bommer's renowned free-movement method of 'Kinetica', and I lived in Israel for two years while teaching this method to other professional dancers from around the world. I am additionally certified in Dance Fitness, am a practiced Hip Hop teacher and performer, and am proficient in many styles of dance. I am a sought-out teacher and choreographer and I have taught contemporary Guest Artist/Master Classes in Northern VA, Richmond VA, Washington DC, Greenville NC, Austin TX, New York City (including classes at major studios Gibney, Mark Morris and Peridance) and in Israel. I have been acknowledged and awarded for my choreography and am the Artistic Director/Founder of DEPTH Dance. My minor (and general interest) in psychology allows me to relate to humans while I help them relate to their bodies and their minds. I am proficient in meditation and movement therapy, and I find great joy in connecting people of any age or level to the limitless world of movement. Join me!!
