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.

Angela Cusumano has been teaching her high-energy class for Princeton Ballet School since the summer of 2008. Angela’s class is a fusion of street jazz, funk, and hip-hop. Class starts with a warm-up to stretch and strengthen the body, followed by a combination consisting of energetic, sexy and hard hitting choreography. Students should have a basic understanding of the jazz technique before taking this class.

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.

Fall classes begin September 9, 2017.
