ALL SESSIONS AT 11:00AM EST
Move with Me
In this first session Reggie introduces and breaks down moves and vocabulary that can be taught to any level of dancer in an “Across the floor” drill-styled approach. Reggie also expands on the origin of movement allowing the opportunity to expand the range of style and information that can be given to students when being taught.
Groove with Me
Session 2 works on making you feel even more comfortable with the moves and vocabulary gained from the first session. Reggie introduces you to a variation of movement, "ways to count," and how to best execute the movement learned while incorporating groove and personal style into each move.
Let's Take a Trip
In this third session, Reggie opens you to the ideas of "traveling" and "navigation" within the previously learned "moves and grooves" of the first two lessons. Learning the ways to transition, shift and travel within these moves is extremely important and influential in the way moves and grooves are used in freestyle as well as how they are executed within choreography.
The Social Experiment
In the final session of the course, Reggie demonstrates and teaches one of his favorite and most effective ways to help students memorize, execute and personalize all of the "moves and grooves" gained so far. This drill can be effective at any level setting when teaching Hip Hop, especially social dance. This will also allow students to find enjoyment and camaraderie with the Hip Hop genre as they also learn the dance.
