The workshop will explore street dance forms, focusing on popping, hip hop and house. The foundations of each style will be explored, with particular focus on the associated social dances for each dance form. Participants will have the opportunity to learn new skills and movements, as well as exploring their own embodiment of each dance form and their connection with the music.
