Service Description

Open Style (recently known as Urban Dance) is an extremely popular style of dance pioneered by Keone and Mari Madrid, Brian Puspos, Kinjaz, Jun Quemado and many others. It's often been mistakenly referred to as hip hop, however Open Style is actually a blend of genres. Choreography can be inspired by hip hop, contemporary, and anything else that is blended to create textured pieces strongly rooted in musicality (accenting elements of the song such as percussion, guitar riffs, etc). This session will focus primarily on choreography. At least TWO years of recent experience in hip hop is required. Sneakers required, which MUST be dedicated to studio-use only. Sneakers worn outside the studio are not allowed, as they create unsafe and unsanitary conditions, as well as carry small stones and debris onto our hardwood floor. This session is a performance class, and by registering you are committing to the August 14 showcase date (rain date August 21) AND August 12 mandatory rehearsal. Class begins the week of April 3 and runs through August 14, with no classes the week of April 18, the day of May 30 (Memorial Day) and the week of July 4. We permit 4 absences, with absences beyond that requiring private lessons at our private lesson rate. Attendance at all classes in August is mandatory in order to ensure participation in the August 14 showcase at Full Out Fest in downtown Troy. Payment plans are available if needed. Just select "pay in person" at checkout and we will message you to set that up. If you choose to pay in person, a non-refundable deposit of $50 will be due in April, with the remainder of your installment plan starting in May. We will work with you to find a schedule and amount that fits your budget. Due to current COVID status, masks are optional at this time. Air purifiers are located throughout the studio as well as hand sanitizer.
