Rapper dancing is a fast paced rhythmic dance with tight figures requiring intricate team work. Clogging steps, flips, sword sweeps and tangles are done in small groups of five dancers. Rapper dancing is a true team experience where your very knuckle skin depends on the coordination of you and your teammates.
Weekly practices are two hours long, and will require stamina, endurance, and patience. This dance form is intricate and very aerobic. We have a great time, and mastering the dance is so satisfying...but come prepared to work (and laugh!). Dancers should wear athletic clothing to practice, and need to purchase the special rapper shoes once they have committed to the team. You must be 13 years or older by September 2014.
