"2021/2022 will be our son’s eighth season at Pound It Hip Hop Dance Studio! Rico, the studio owner and lead instructor, is knowledgeable, very talented and is an excellent mentor for the kids within his program. He teaches the fundamentals of true hip hop culture while at the same time making the classes fun for participants. Part of the education and training provided by the studio has been in the form of world renowned, top notch, international guest instructors from as far away as Germany and the USA. This studio offers a welcoming environment and grass roots hip hop at its finest! I wish I could give them 10 stars!!

Pound It and the Pound It family invited us with open arms into their world. This inclusive studio is everything our family could ever hope for. The culture is perfect and brings a love for music, movement, unity and individual confidence. We were a little apprehensive to join a hip hop dance studio with hip hop promoted the way it is in mainstream culture, but to experience hip hop in it's root form was eye opening. Unity, art, love and support are all words we now use to describe this dance form.
There are not words that can express the innate ability of Rico and the other instructors to connect with their students and promote the best in each one individually. They takes the time to learn and understand individual students and pushes them JUST the right amount to make them succeed and fly with their own wings. La Familia should not be the words used to describe just one group of dancers, instead it should describe the atmosphere of the studio. Whether dancing competitively or non-competitively you are part of the family! We recommend Pound It to everyone

Jayden has attended Pound It for the last 3 years. She spent the last year training to qualify for the Youth Olympic Games. She attended the World Youth Breaking Championship in Japan in May. None of this would have been possible without the training and support of Rico and the staff from Pound It.

Pound It is the best kept "secret" in Red Deer. As an adult dancer, I have had so many opportunities to learn different dance styles, and the atmosphere is very welcoming. I am also amazed by the young dancers and the culture of creativity and caring developed by the studio owners and instructors. I've danced at a few studios across Canada and Pound It is a real gem. If you're a parent, send your kid here. If you're an adult, come dance!
Kim Aquino, DANCER
I highly recommend this studio to learn diverse dance styles, especially breaking. The right teachers, right peers, and atmosphere as opposed to most "hip-hop" dance studios is the place to go!
Monica Hamilton, Dance Mom
Joining Pound It has fired up my son's passion for dance like I can't believe. What a supportive and encouraging dance family we have found here!
