Each day consists of four classes in which you will learn technical skills in various hip-hop dance styles such as Commercial Dance, Breaking, House, Locking, Jazz/Funk, Freestyle and more. This intensive program, beginning at 9:30am, takes a full day of classes to the next level by challenging both your body and mind.

You will have opportunities to participate in dance battles, apply dance theory for music videos and concerts, and will even have the opportunity to participate in Talent Agency Day where talent agents come to preview talent. The day concludes with rehearsals in preparation for a performance where you will get to show off everything you have learned in the studio throughout the intensive.
