Did you know: The Top Benefits of Hip-hop Dance Class

First things first. Let’s get to know where “Hip-hop” comes from. Let’s break it down! The word is a combination of two slang terms. Hip, which means “in the know,” has been a part of African American vernacular since the late nineteenth century while Hop represents the hopping movement exhibited by hip-hop performers.

Hip-hop incorporates old and new dance moves and styles like break dancing, popping, cramping and even traditional jazz moves. A large part of hip-hop dance is creativity and improvisation and just letting the music moves you. This is a great way to encourage creativity and expression through dance classes for children and adults. There are many other great benefits of hip-hop dance classes which include:

#StepOne: Boost confidence


Generally, confidence plays a key aspect to personal satisfaction and happiness. There’s no better way to build confidence than mastering the intricate steps of a hip-hop routine. Looking at a hip-hop dancer, it may be very intimidating to imagine yourself under the same pressure. But every dancer starts at step one!

At IAID, our instructor will guide you through a progressive course designed to build your confidence and self-esteem.

#BreatheInBreatheOut: Great way to your physical wellness


Hip-hop dance is a full body work out. It has both aerobic and anaerobic health benefits. The typical class is 60 minutes of moderate to high-intensity movement. Based on studies, raising your heart rate protects your cardiovascular health. Hip-hop dance moves can also strengthen the muscles in your arms, legs, and the entire body.

#SwagFriends: Socially-mannered for the future


Dance classes are usually taught in groups, which means that your child will have the opportunity to meet new people outside of their regular social circle. This is an especially important aspect for young children—it’s imperative to help them foster good social skills from an early age so that they can carry them through life. Your child can meet people from all walks of life at a dance class since there’s no rhyme or reason to who joins.

#SoThinkYouCanDance: Mental toughness at its finest


Exercise relieves stress and music can decrease anxiety and depression. Therefore, in combination, music and exercise can benefit your mental health immensely.  This helps you be more in tune with your body and fluid in your movement throughout the day.


At the end of the line, hip-hop dance course brings every child positive effects to their upbringing and most especially in discovering their passion.
