HIP HOP SOCIETY
Hip Hop Society is brand new and open to all DMU Students to participate, learn and eventually compete in Hip Hop Dance. This means you can be an absolute beginner in Hip Hop Dance or you can have a world of experience behind you!
Our aim is to give the students of DMU the opportunity to learn, create and perform in many styles. We aim not only to teach dance, but the culture of Hip Hop, including the history, foundations and rules.
We offer weekly lessons in a variety of styles (the timetable will be up soon with teachers, times, rooms and suitable ability levels!!!) and its culture, contributing to the growing popularity of dance in and around Leicester.
Our teachers and Committee include:
Jamie Stephenson: President and Teacher. Jamie has competed in a variety of competitions such as BDO and DCUK, coming first in many. Jamie also runs Leicester based CODE Crew which recently came third in Midland's Best Dance Crew and performed in the nationwide tour of Breakin' Convention.
Hatti Dawson: Vice President/Events Coordinator and Teacher. Hatti has trained with renowed companies such as ZooNation Dance Company and Boadecia Ladies Company. Hatti also teaches Hip Hop reguarly in her home town and is a member of CODE Crew.
Kenya Sterling: Treasurer and Teacher. Kenya is also a member of CODE Crew and has trained with ZooNation. She has also studied Commercial and Hip Hop dance in LA over summer.
Cameron Garrett: Health and Safety Officer and Teacher. Cameron has competed in many competitions, excelling in popping and freestyle, again succeeding in many. He is also a member of CODE Crew.
We hope you can join us, whether it is regular lessons to have some fun and learn some routines, whether its just for the freestyles jams or whether its to compete and perform with the Hip Hop Society!
If you want to get involved, simply buy a £10 membership and come along to class. Bring £1 for every class you go to - this money will go back into competitions, brand new kit and performances.
