Can anyone who's taken the hip-hop class give me an idea on the structure? I've taken a couple of 'semesters' of a class that was routine based (pick a song, learn the choriography). Is this the same or are you learning specific steps and combos?

I like a fast pace, am I going to be bored?

TIA,

Di

Hey Tia,

I want to do hiphop too to be able to improvise on salsa music just like those guys.

By the way, I'm looking for other artist that mix hiphop and salsa if you have some links !
From what I saw, doing routine is ok as long as you're able to pick some specific move of the routine and put them in your freestyle.
I've also seen that you got to learn basic steps and work with them in order to play with them the way you like after : sliding, waving, oldman... you can look for those references on youtube, you have many tutorials for all that.

Hi Di,

I believe Ece teaches very high energy, quick paced moves. Some of it is choreography but a lot of it are moves. So you learn moves and then you do small choreographies.

Hope that helps!

it would be great if the hip hop classes could be spread out more... As opposed to being on Friday & Saturday. It would be great to have the ability to attend a class during the week after work (ie. Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings)
