Over the past fifty years, Hip Hop has transformed not only the professional dance landscape, but also global popular culture. This movement-based studio course expands upon the fundamentals of Hip Hop dance to develop more intermediate and advanced-level technique. Students will develop an understanding of hip hop movement aesthetics and approaches through warmup, across-the-floor exercises, phrase work, choreographic studies, and class discussions. Through supplemental readings, viewings, and written response papers, students will also gain greater depth and breadth of knowledge about the history and culture of the form. Prerequisites: Beginner-Intermediate Hip Hop or equivalent prior experience, with permission from the instructor.
