This is an open dance class accessible to students with all levels of experience in dance. No specific history or abilities are necessary to keep up.
What will you learn?
Each class will challenge students with footwork techniques and drills as well as more challenging technical Breaking moves.
Students will learn and develop something new each session, but for those attending regularly we aim to assist in building a knowledge of b-boy foundation, training, labbing and battle techniques to improve personal fitness and assist in nurturing creativity and efficiency for cyphers and battles.
This class compliments the Thursday Breaking Classes which cover fundamentals in Toprock, Drops & go downs, Footwork & Groundwork, Freezes, and Power moves; and additionally our Wednesday classes aim to push students who are familiar with the fundamentals and wish to develop themselves further.
Lead by Haseeb “Chilly” Hearn our teaching term program focuses on developing confident creative minds through disciplined physical training in a fun, safe and open environment.
B-Boy Chilly specialises in Breaking, but also has experience in hip-hop freestyle, (hip-hop choreo as a member of Boy Blue Ent), Popping, House and Experimental.
