Have you tried street dance yet?

Here’s everything you need to know!

 

What is street dance?

 

Street Dance incorporates a range of fun and energetic dance styles – including break dance, hip hop and commercial jazz.

 

Street dance is thought to have originated in the United States, with many of the most famous street dance pioneers coming from big cities like New York. Today, street dance can be seen everywhere from music videos to concerts and on stage!

 

Why we love it!

Street dance teaches confidence, body awareness and a keen sense of rhythm. Dance along to your favourite tracks in a welcoming and encouraging environment.
