Class Description

Hip Hop Basics

This class will be focusing on many different techniques within the hiphop style such as: hiphop foundations, step variations, isolations, musicality, movement quality and much more. Students will gain the knowledge and technique to create their own styles of hiphop, and develop the musicality to move freely & react to music in any environment.


In Dom’s shuffling classes, he teaches the basic steps and movements within the shuffling style. Students should expect a fun high energy class, learning different moves and putting them together in combination. What is learnt can also be applied when going out clubbing, raving & much more.

First ever shuffle dance class at Danceworks with the awesome Dom. It was so fun and easy to pick up because of the teacher! Thank you!  – James
