FUNK FUSION

This is the name of a unique class we teach. It is not a style or dance form. In our “Funk Fusion” classes we take students through all elements under the Streetdance “umbrella”. Participants of this class will learn sound foundation and knowledge of many social and street dances such as Hip Hop, Lockin, Poppin, Krumpin, Breakin (Breakdance), House and Waackin.  Each class focuses on blending styles together to create fun, fresh and funky routines.

HIP HOP

The style was born in 1970's USA but is still one of the most popular international dance genres. Learn how to Dougie, Jerk, Running Man, Bart Simpson, Smurf and many more fun steps and grooves. This class is great for building muscle strength, fitness and co-ordination, as well as improving individual creativity and choreography skills through the freestyle (non-choreographed) elements of this dance style.

BREAKDANCE

Breakin is one of the most well-known branches of street dance. We’re taking it from the street into the studio to give the present and future generations the chance to learn the correct technique of all elements of B-Boying, such as top rocks, get downs, footwork, freezes and power preparations such as back spins, head spins, cartwheels and handstands. This class offers both individual, partner and group work and a great way to build social skills and confidence. It is perfect for developing co-ordination, balance and upper and lower body strength and for impressing friends! Come along for fun and to learn some tricks to wow your friends at your next party or if you're serious and want to go further you can build your skills to compete in organised friendly battles!

Breakin classes are a big hit for birthday parties and community events. Please see our Instructors page for details of the Funk it Up Breakin associates.
