What does it involve?

During the hip hop summer school week you will get training in a range of dance styles and techniques building towards a public performance on the Friday evening.  There is an intensive rehearsal schedule, so you must be prepared to work hard physically.   The sessions offer a range of hip hop based styles including house, aahehop, locking, popping, street, contemporary, breakdance and many more.

The workshops consist of an intense warm-up, basic technique in a particular style and specific choreography for the performance.  After a warmdown, you will get a chance to relax, discuss dance and share videos of performances.

If you are interested in dance you might also want to consider our musical theatre summer camps, which include lots of dance workshops and performance.

An end of course performance will be presented at 19.30 on Friday 16 August during the Night Market in Beauville.

It is possible for non-residential students to stay for dinner and evening activities by arrangement.  The camp is a truly international experience and participants come from many different countries.  During the week you will also get the chance to socialise and share workshops with musicians on the Advanced Songwriting and Studio Recording and Rock Academy courses.
