IgniteYou has qualified dance Instructors who specialise in Hip Hop, Street, House, Foundations of Breakdance and Contemporary.
Hip Hop and Street are very current trends and have exploded over the last 15 years since shows such as Britains Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance have brought it to the attention of the masses. The moves are a mix of high energy and feeling with music from a Hip Hop orientation. Hip hop is very much about expression and individual personality. It involves many different styles within the one umbrella heading and can be anything from House dance through to Breakdance.
Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that developed during the mid twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, with particularly strong popularity in the U.S. and Europe.
