Hip hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music that includes a variety of urban styles. Classes are taken by once a week with the goal of all students partaking in the July Hip Hop exams.
Auckland Academy of Dance follows the Rhythm Beats Movement (RBM) syllabi.
RBM is designed to provide New Zealand’s dance studios with the latest in Urban Choreography, by some of the most talented choreographers throughout the country. The program works in levels, teaching foundational movements and exercises to assist the growth of students into well-rounded and technical dancers, working progressively through a variety of street/commercial dance and urban choreography.
While focusing on developing technique and skill, RBM is curated with an emphasis on performance and encourages students to step outside of their comfort zone, gaining confidence through dance. RBM strives to make each lesson a positive and enjoyable experience.
Hip Hop students in Beginners and Level 1 Hip Hop participate in the Junior School concert which is held mid Term 4 and Levels 2 and above participate in the end of year concert held in December towards the end of the term.
