Intermediate Hip Hop – Adult Open Classes
Jazz and Hiphop classes: Princeton Ballet School offers two types of class derived from the jazz dance tradition—theater dance/jazz and hiphop. Each is a fast and lively class, with lots of complicated dancing and, typically, very little personal help given. If you are still fairly new to dance and are looking for lots of personal help and a slow-paced environment, start with the ballet or modern dance classes. The theater dance and hiphop classes are about speed and energy, so the teachers purposely don’t slow down because they need to keep up the pace for the majority of students. In even the beginner classes, it is assumed that this means beginners to this type of dance, not beginners to the study of dance in general.
Amanda Page teaches hiphop in Princeton, with a beginner class first and an intermediate/advanced class afterwards. These classes are best enjoyed by dancers with some prior background and excellent physical conditioning. This is an energetic class with emphasis on the importance of dynamics and stylistic movement in dance. Her class is a fusion of breaking styles, in combination with the latest and most up to date hiphop techniques and choreography. Clothing:
Comfortable dancewear or streetwear you can really move in—sweatpants, yoga pants or shorts, with t-shirts, tank tops or hoodies. SHOES REQUIRED—sneakers or jazz shoes would be good choices.
