MODERN DANCE @ KINETIX DANCE
At Kinetix Dance we offer a chance for children to experience lots of different styles of dance. We look at Musical Theatre, Jazz, Contemporary and Commercial dance throughout the dance year along with the ever popular Hip Hop. We think its important to expose the children to lots of different styles so they can find their feet. They soon discover if its the structure of Jazz that suits them or the freedom of contemporary, but most of the time we find they just like to move to the music, whatever style it may be.
Be a part of one of the most popular styles around. Hip Hop has the freedom of expression unlike Ballet & Jazz there isn’t a name for every step or a syllabus to follow. Hip Hop is about creativity, dynamics, vision, rhythm and looking down right cool.
Dancing to all the out now tunes by artists such as Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber and many many more, the list goes on. Dance hard enough, practice harder and one day it could be you on MTV.
