Elements of Hip Hop Summer Camps
Red Deer July 23-26 2019
Breaking, Graffiti, DJing, MCing and KNOWLEDGE!
Come learn the roots and history of the global phenomenon that is Hip Hop. In addition to breaking we will cover Hip Hop party dances and choreography.
4 Principles of Hip Hop:
Peace, love, unity and having fun!
History will include the dire situation in the 1960s Bronx NY that gave birth to this beautiful culture and how unity through Hip Hop transformed a near war zone to a (more) peaceful community.
Dancers will learn why the elements are important in a authentic presentation of the culture. We will also cover how the transfer of false information has contributed to a vast amount misunderstanding and exploitation of the Hip Hop culture ie) "gangsta rap", and false terms such as "studio stream hip hop" and "breakdancing". By ensuring that our youth are given the correct information they can then be leaders and carry on the knowledge for generations to come. Each one teach one, and this is how change happens.
