For those that may not necessarily enjoy running or eliptical workouts, but enjoy dancing, Thanyapura’s Hip hop class is a great workout – and great fun. Participants break a sweat by making their way through an addictive infusion of dance styles and new sounds. New choreographic moves are developed as the class progresses, all whilst mainting an elevated heart rate and getting the blood pumping.
Hip hop originates from a subculture that developed in the 1970s in The Bronx, New York, and is characterised by 9 expressive elements; Breaking, MCing, Graffiti Art, DJing, Beat Boxing, Street Fashion, Street Language, Street Knowledge and Street Entrepreneurialism. Hip hop dance evolved soon afterwards, and includes Breaking (a variety of footwork skills whilst standing up), Locking (freezing in place before continuing with the routine) and Popping (moves that only use some parts of the body, or quickly contract and relax certain muscles to cause a jerk effect).
Thanyapura’s Hip hop class focuses on improving cardiovascular health (and not perfecting technique). All are welcome – even those with no prior experience in dancing! Equal emphasis is placed on having fun as well as breaking a sweat. Participants can burn up to 400 calories during an hour workout.
