Hip-Hop has evolved from street dancing into a highly loved, passionate, and popular dance style. The combination of street dance with Hip-Hop and pop music creates energetic, fun, and hard-hitting choreography. Each Hip-Hop teacher at Empire has their own style, flavor and interpretation of Hip-Hop, try one or try them all!
