Hip Hop Dance · In studio

Michelle Seabreeze is a phenomenal Teacher and most importantly great person. Her classes and teaching styles are fun with her hilarious and peppy personality. she taught me the different elements of hip which are: Breaking, Popping, Locking, House, And Straight Hip Hop. If your having trouble picking up a movement she uses a funny technique called super slow motion. Seabreeze creates a safe, fun, and comfortable environment to learn in.

I took Michelle's Hip Hop classes and i was amazed by her energy and how friendly she was. She taught me several style of Hip Hop as in Break Dancing, Popping, Locking, Isolations, House, Old School, Vougue etc etc. She is an amazing woman with many talents and personalities (but in a great way). I learned so much from her and trust me i will be taking future classes from her to learn even more. There was never a dole moment in her classes from beginning ( the stretch and warm ups) to the end (freestyle groove if we were lucky enough). I give her classes five stars because of how much fun i had and how much i've learned. Keep up the great work Michelle!
