The Hip Hop Hippo class is for age 2-4. The little girls & boys will learn & develop funky street moves to action songs & the latest music. The little girls & boys love this class & it is lovely to see their confidence grow & engage with Hip Hop Hippo & the other children in the class. Parents wait in the room next door where there is a CCTV system set up so they can see their child dancing. Jenny believes that having just the dancers in the studio is a very important part of building their independence as a dancer. If a child is unsure for a few weeks initially then Jenny will allow one parent in the room during this time while they settle.
This class is designed to teach them their basic street dance moves & develop their co-ordination skills, they also have the opportunity to be creative. When they turn 4 and once Jenny thinks they are ready she will move them up to street dance lil’ crew.
Children are rewarded each week with a sticker on their reward chart. Each term has a different colour chart which they take home as a memory keepsake once they have filled it, an achievement from them to be proud of.
