Mini Hip Hop

Mini Hip Hop: This class begins to synergize the elements of hip hop dance- musicality, body isolations, footwork and personal expression- into choreography across the floor and in the center. Students continue to work with the down and up beat to deepen their understanding and expression of rhythmic accents within their bodies. The class will introduce students to more complex choreography sequences. We always end with a free style circle to connect with one another and celebrate hip hop dance.

Dress Code: Athletic pants and t-shirt or tank top and CLEAN athletic shoes. Athletic shoes with minimal tread are preferred. Hair in a pony tail or bun. To purchase Hip Hop specific athletic shoes, visit our ONLINE STORE.

“At Gold Dust Dance, my daughter gained the confidence to express herself, not only artistically, through dance, but also in various situations with her friends. In addition, participation with Gold Dust has expanded her “friend group” beyond the walls of school. She can’t wait for Fall so she can get back to dancing!”

~ Cherie Rollins

Mini Jazz

Mini Jazz: We will begin each class with an energetic full body warm up- isolations, footwork patterns and stretching. From there students will be introduced to technical moves- turns, kicks, leaps and movements to the floor- through foundational exercises. Each class will include choreography sequences to challenges students’ muscle memory, technical skills, and performance.

Dress Code: Leggings and leotard or fitted tank top and jazz shoes. Hair in a pony tail or bun. To purchase dress code items visit our ONLINE STORE.
