NY Hip Hop Dance Classes & More
House of Movement
Weekly Class Schedule
House of Movement is a NYC dance studio that is proud to offer a diverse schedule classes in Hip Hop and Street Styles to engage dancers of all levels. Our dance studio offers classes in beginner, intermediate, advanced, and open levels. A description for each dance class level can be found in the class level key below. Hip Hop and Street Style classes are taught by different choreographers, so that you can learn the foundation within the style and challenge yourself with different interpretations and nuances of choreography.
Typically our classes start with a warm-up and stretch that lasts for up to 30 minutes. This is aimed to get your blood pumping and body conditioned for hip hop dance. For the remainder of class, you will learn a dance routine from one of our talented choreographers. At the end of class, your choreographer will demonstrate the routine for the class, and you can record the demo for practice at home. The only thing we ask is that you don't post your video on social media without our permission, as we will post a video of the choreography on our YouTube channel. A description of each type of hip hop and street style dance class we offer can be found in the class description section below.
Currently, House of Movement has classes are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights from 7-10pm. All of our classes are held at Pearl Studios, which has two locations: 500 8th Ave and 519 8th Ave, which located across from each other on 8th Ave between 35th and 36th St. Since they have multiple studio locations, our room assignment can change week to week.
