We are very fortunate to have Evie from Jig-zaw Dance Creationz come into school regularly to teach Hip-Hop Dance. This gives children of Henley School an opportunity to learn dance and also perform at an optional end of year production in the summer term. 

There are many benefits to any kind of dance classes for children and hip hop dance classes combine several different styles of dance, not just the typical idea of what hip hop dancing is. It incorporates old and new dance moves and styles like break dancing, popping, crumping and even traditional jazz moves. A large part of hip hop dance is creativity and improvisation and just moving to the music. This is a great way to encourage creativity and expression through dance classes for children. There are many other great benefits to hip hop dance classes that include:


Increased flexibility
Better balance
Increased coordination
Development of muscle
Builds self-confidence
Artistic expression
Physical Activity


Hip Hop dance classes are great for children and provides a great outlet for not only their energy but also artistic expression. Dancing requires a lot of physical activity and can help your child be more physically fit, but through movement it also teaches them how to be graceful and can help develop their coordination and balance. Hip hop also requires graceful movements and incorporates different dance styles like jazz and even lyrical dance techniques which will help your child develop new talents and skills. A major part of dancing is being creative and hip hop dancing is the same. It allows for children to create their own dance combinations and moves to the beat of the music and allows them to express their emotions through movement.
