This Hip-Hop class will focus on foundational movement, learning basic technique and having fun whilst becoming more comfortable with dance, your body and Hip-Hop. There will be a focus on connecting to music, each other and your own body, learning choreography using Hip-Hop party dances we learn throughout class.
These workshops are presented by TRIBES Youth Arts Festival in association with Galway Dance Project and Creative Ireland.
