Rec Classes

Registration is open year round!

 

These classes are for those who are new to street dance and/or our studio. They are relaxed, inviting and designed to foster the love of music and recognize how it brings people together. Classes are 45 minutes once a week. They are taught by a variety of instructors and will include the styles of hip hop and breaking.  New this year we have added an additional Rec class called Funk Styles where dancers will learn the west coast styles of Popping and Locking; however, this class can only be taken in addition to a Rec Hip Hop Class. Dancers will perform in the Christmas Battle and in the studio year end show in June.

PIHHDA

www.pihhda.com

We have a wonderful group of supportive dance enthusiast parents who have set up the Pound It Hip Hop Dancers' Association for fundraising to support our dancers and help with dance expenses.  There is a membership fee and volunteer requirements to become a member of the association. This past year has been extremely successfully, the association has achieved all of its financial goals and the members received over $1700 each in dance credits!!  This money is for dance related expenses and will help our dancers get to New York this Summer for training and it will also pay for upcoming tuition and workshops. We encourage all dancers both rec and competitive to join this association. Even if you are not planning on travelling with our studio, the association can assist with other dance related expenses. More information will be given on the association at the mandatory parent dancer meeting Sept 28 @6pm.

 

  • We close the studio on all holidays and take breaks  mostly in accordance with the school schedule- there is some variation between catholic and public, so to be fair we have followed parts of both schedules. This to give families the ability plan vacations without conflicting with the dancer’s schedule. Please take this into consideration when you are planning to go away for an extended period of time and try to minimize missed classes. Studio Closures are posted in the dancer portal and also in the Important dates and Studio Closures page.

 

 Facebook Page

General Studio announcements and reminders such as schedule changes or class cancellations (should they happen) will be announced on the Pound It Hip Hop Studio- Studio Member Page on facebook. It is a closed group and you must request to join the group to be added. Announcements will also be posted in the dancer portal.
