Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® was developed by owner/director Jessica Gleason. Jessica has been teaching dance and movement to kids and adults for more than 15 years. She started this program because of her passion to get kids dancing and enjoying just MOVING their bodies in in the moment; to dance without an end goal or product. 

Jessica is a mom of two boys and has first hand experience of the heartache and stress that is caused by the pressure put on kids these days to specialize in sports/dance, etc so early in their lives. She has seen how quite often if these kids are coming “too late to the game” or seen as “lacking in natural talent,” or if they really love the activity but don’t want to eat, breathe and sleep it, they might be “cut” from the team/class, etc, often as early as the tween years!


In light of this experience she felt compelled to create an inclusive space for ALL to come and enjoy dance and movement! Kids and adults too!

Hip-hop for beginners

There are quite a lot of dances for children who do not have dance training, but hip-hop has been and remains one of the most popular styles of any age. This dance trend came to us from the USA, it originated in New York in the 70s of the last century and was a component of a large culture that, in addition to dancing, includes music, graffiti, fashion and much more. By the 1990s, this cultural phenomenon had spread everywhere, across all continents and countries of the globe, and gained popularity among many young people around the world.

Now you can learn this dance direction in almost any dance school. By itself, this dance is bright, charismatic, it has its own character, and one of its important components is acting. This is a rhythmic and dynamic, very active dance that brings with it extremely positive emotions and causes joy. For children, the form in which it is usually performed also causes a separate delight: wide trousers, sneakers, baseball caps and other irreplaceable attributes of this direction. Teenagers love this free style, and with the help of it they delve deeper into the essence of the style and learn to feel its character and aesthetics.

Hip-hop is a very dynamic and rhythmic, but at the same time quite relaxed dance direction, which includes many waves, springy, often acrobatic movements and elements. The dancer's knees, however, remain relaxed throughout the dance. This dance direction is usually divided into two large groups, including many styles: old school and new school. It is customary to refer to the old school, for example, breakdance, uprock, toprock, and to the new school - locking, popping, etc.

Hip-hop is a great sports workout, fun and exciting, containing a lot of exercises necessary for a growing body.

They instill in the baby an impeccable sense of rhythm, musicality, the ability to listen to music and understand its mood, adjusting their movements to it.

A child can start attending lessons from the age of 5-6, while getting the maximum benefit for his body. Contrary to popular belief among parents, hip-hop has a minimal risk of injury. This is not an extreme dance, as it may seem to many, but first of all a way of self-expression, with the help of which a child can open up and give free rein to his energy and craving for movement. The use of elements of acrobatics always remains the choice of the performer, and the dance itself can be performed without them.

Classes for children are built almost the same as classes for adults, but they differ in that knowledge is presented in an easier form, and the emphasis is on making it as accessible as possible. In these lessons, children learn the basics, delve into the essence of hip-hop as a direction, while physical training is also of great importance. All workouts are associated with exercises that develop stretching, body plasticity, coordination of movements and strength training.

It is believed that hip-hop dance is only for boys, however, this is a big misconception. Girls can do it too. The main thing is the desire to achieve results and the desire to learn how to dance confidently. For a restless child, this is a great opportunity to throw out their indefatigable energy and direct it in a positive direction. Hip-hop is a great sports workout, fun and exciting, containing a lot of exercises that a growing body needs. They instill in the baby an impeccable sense of rhythm, musicality, the ability to listen to music and understand its mood, adjusting their movements to it. Being engaged, the child acquires a beautiful toned figure and posture, confident gait and movements. Dance lessons are a great way to prevent weight gain in overweight children.

In hip-hop, a lot of importance is given to improvisation, and this, in turn, perfectly develops imagination and fantasy, and also strengthens memory: both auditory and visual, as well as muscle. Skills acquired in the classroom help children improve their success in the general education school. It has been established that children who go in for dancing in their performance surpass their peers who do not go in for dancing.

Dancing in groups, children communicate with each other and thereby develop their communication skills, eliminating complexes and fears and gaining confidence in themselves and their abilities. At school and among friends, the child is guaranteed to become respected and authoritative, as those peers who have achieved significant success in any interesting activities are usually valued. In discos, he will become a real star of the dance floor and will be able to amaze and delight the audience. In addition, a passion for hip-hop, with due diligence, can grow from a hobby into a professional career: dance lessons open the way to the world of show business, television programs, dance shows, concert performances, competitions, competitions.

Dancing is a huge, extensive field for personal and professional development. If you want to direct your child's energy in the right direction, want to see him healthy, beautiful, successful and self-confident, hip-hop is the direction you need! Sign up your child for classes and very soon you will notice positive changes in his well-being and character, and his results and achievements will not cease to please you for a very, very long time!

Lesson 4

Let's learn 6 basic movements: "Party Duke", "March step", "Reebok", "Wu Tang", "Bart Simpson", "Cabbage Patch".

Lesson 5

We continue to learn basic steps. In this lesson, we will learn how to dance the Biz Markie, Horse move, Tone wop, Shamrock, Criss cross, Party machine and Sponge Bob moves.
