Motion Dance Company offers authentic Hip Hop dance classes for all ages and abilities. As one of the first Hip Hop centered studios in the Hillcrest area, Motion Dance focuses on the building blocks of current Hip Hop with classes in older styles – Locking, Popping and Breaking – as well as derivative styles like Krump, Waacking, and Urban/New Style. Whether you are just starting out in your Hip Hop journey, or want to expand your skills, the MDC family is the perfect place for you.
