Hello! For the audition videos, it seems that Michael's video is not mirrored (the video sides do not match what he is saying for his left and right). Should we just follow the video as we see it and ignore the verbal "left" and "right" instructions? Thank you!

- Anonymous

An updated video has been provided in the google folder! Let us know if there are any further issues.

Hype - a new dimension in the world of hip-hop

Hype - a new dimension in the world of hip-hop

Hip-hop is a developed subculture that includes numerous dance styles. New Style, popping, r'n'b - all these styles are united by one concept. A few years ago, a new dance direction appeared, bordering on the technique of new style, and therefore part of hip-hop - hype dance. nine0004

What is HYIP?

Hype is one of the offshoots of hip-hop. The new style is characterized by spectacular dynamism and ease of development. This factor allowed the dance direction, after its appearance in France, to spread throughout Europe within a few years. At the moment, hype is used more widely in show business and is a great alternative to r'n'b.

Dance Melody

Hype is a pretty balanced dance. There are no sharp bursts in it, as a rule, it is performed to medium-tempo music. If you give an example of the most common musical accompaniment for hype, it would be tribal house music. The hype moves are pretty easy to do. If a dancer has ever been trained in hip-hop, he will be able to master a new style in a few months. Judging by the rapid development of the dance, it will retain its popularity and remain relevant in a few years. nine0004

Where is the hype dancing?

Nightclubs are the best place to perform hype. The attention-grabbing dance style, unusual technique, and refined movements will make it possible to arrange a real show on the dance floor of any club. In addition, hype dance looks good in mass performance. Now dance groups are beginning to appear, performing in this particular style.

If you want to master some kind of dance direction, but you don't want to devote several years of your life to it, try learning hype dance. nine0004
