HIP HOP KIDS DANCE FITNESS®

Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® is best described as a DANCE PARTY featuring kid-friendly hip hop & pop routines! Classes incorporate key childhood development elements like confidence, self-esteem, memory, creativity, and coordination. Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® helps to develop a healthy lifestyle and incorporate fitness as a natural part of children’s lives by making fitness FUN!

It is the mission of Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® to provide a safe, respectful, and inclusive space for ALL kids to DANCE and enjoy MOVING their bodies.

Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® programs are NOT traditional style dance classes and therefore kids are grouped solely by age and not by ability. Our programs are all about FUN and experiencing dancing in the moment. It is our truest hope that Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® programming will highlight each child’s unique way of enjoying music and movement regardless of ability or experience.

Hip Hop Kids Dance Fitness® was developed by owner/director Jessica Gleason. Jessica has been teaching dance and movement to kids and adults for more than 15 years. She started this program because of her passion to get kids dancing and enjoying just MOVING their bodies in in the moment; to dance without an end goal or product. 

Jessica is a mom of two boys and has first hand experience of the heartache and stress that is caused by the pressure put on kids these days to specialize in sports/dance, etc so early in their lives. She has seen how quite often if these kids are coming “too late to the game” or seen as “lacking in natural talent,” or if they really love the activity but don’t want to eat, breathe and sleep it, they might be “cut” from the team/class, etc, often as early as the tween years!

 

In light of this experience she felt compelled to create an inclusive space for ALL to come and enjoy dance and movement! Kids and adults too!
