The newest dance style to upbeat hip hop music.  Students will learn to develop co-ordination and style through fast intricate movement.  We are excited to be teaching the new RBM syllabus which is designed to provide New Zealand dance studios with the latest in Urban Choreography by some of the most talented choreographers our country has to offer.

Ben has danced with Auckland based company Identity Dance Company, his crew the Swagganauts have competed in various competitions including regional and national competitions and qualified to represent NZ in the World Hip Hop International Championship in the USA against other dance crews from around the world.
Ben was privileged to dance along side other dancers in Justin Beiber’s music video ‘Children’.  Ben was a finalist in the ACDA competition taking out the open own choreography division, the teen solo division and winning overall.
