Lesson Details

Hip Hop Dance

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Are you someone who just loves to dance, but you're not sure where to start and you aren't and have never really been a studio dancer? That was once me, I went into college with never having any sort of technical training and ended up graduating with UNLV Department of Dance's Outstanding Performer Award. So I learned my style of movement from both outside and inside the studio which will allow me to bring the best of both worlds to you as an upcoming dancer and give you versitility in movement and choreography.

I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern.

I was also awarded UNLV Dance Department's Outstanding Performer Award. I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience, in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern. For my choreography, I draw inspiration from and truly love to mix the genres of contemporary and hip-hop, creating a blend of hard hits and smooth releases.

Lucinda was on time, very friendly, and happy to get right to the lesson after getting a little background I do. She made some suggestions for attire, stretches, warm-ups, etc. We can't wait to see her again!
