K-pop is a fun and upbeat style of music originating in South Korea. K-pop dance choreography mainly originates from the hip hop style of dancing but can also include other styles such as contemporary, whacking and street dance (popping, locking, B-boying). The class will focus on learning cover dance choreography by famous Korean musical groups and artists. Every other week students will learn a new short piece of choreography from some of the most popular K-pop artists. This class is suited for dancers of all backgrounds and experience levels. Steps will be broken down thoroughly so even the most beginner level dancer can excell. Once a student feels comfortable with a section of choreography, the next section will be added on and taught. The class will be broken down into three sections:

 

  1. Stretch - This will help students warm up their bodies and muscles properly to avoid injury. 

  2. Warm up - This will help students understand and apply the fundamentals of the style they will be learning. Warm up will include grooves, heart rate exercises, and body awareness. 

  3. Learn Choreography - Let’s go! Students will learn a short section of choreography to a designated song. We will go over each section and review it before adding on music. We will then combine all learned sections and dance to the music.
