Learn Hip Hop
Hop Shop -- Hip Hop Shop's winning equation: 10 dance moves,
a few cute and talented kids, three pro teachers (including the
pioneering CrazyLegs of Rock Steady Crew), and one infectious philosophy:
Hip hop's all about "the flavor you bring to the dance."
You gotta have "flow."
You also oughta have ready access to the rewind button to replay
the instructions a few hundred times. While the steps are broken
down to kid-friendly basics, the action can seem head-turningly
complicated. The six hip-hop moves are the most accessible, while
the break dancing sometimes appears comically confusing.
Yet the precocious backup dancers, regular-looking kids who mirror
the video's target age of 5 to 12, make all the right moves, making
it seem like there's hope for even the most dance-impaired child,
or parent, to "find your groove" in the privacy (thankfully)
of home. --Valerie J. Nelson
Hop For Kids -- (DVD) A reviewr writes: I really enjoyed this
dvd. I have an eight year old boy and a five year old girl. I was
looking for something that would give them exercise (a little work-out).
When the DVD came the children were so excited, the dance steps
were fun however they were a little difficult to catch on. By the
first week my son was able to do quite a few of the steps. They
both love it so much. They want to practice almost every day and
I tell them that pratice makes perfect. The only problem I had was
that I could not get the DVD to play on my DVD Player, it only plays
on my computor. I dont know if it is the DVD or a glitch in my player.
