This Hip Hop class will be relatively introductory. It will introduce students to various terminology and technique, and will touch on many different styles in a very simple approach. From the first week basic steps and combinations will be taught in a very empathetic and compassionate manner, and as the class progresses more technique and variation will slowly be added to the steps in such a way to make the learning process easier and more accessible to those who are new to dance. Styles such as pop & lock, stepping, waving, tutting, stobing, and bounce will be lightly presented as to give the student a much better understanding of the diversity of Hip Hop.
J Clement began dance at the age of 5 when his mother enrolled him in a tumbling class at Allegro Dance Arts after finally tiring of him doing backflips off of her living room couch. From then on he developed a strong interest in hip hop and became a part of the studio’s competition team at the age of 8. He began assistant teaching and choreographing at the age of 13 while still taking class and competing, and by 16 he was an assistant coach for the studios hip hop team. Throughout high school he remained heavily involved in the studio’s hip hop and tumbling departments, and dabbled in most everything including modern, jazz, and tap and also decided to take a ballet class to improve technique and form. He attended many different dance workshops and conventions including Monsters of Hip Hop and The Pulse, where he worked with choreographers such as NappyTabs, Brian Friedman, Mia Michaels and Travis Wall. He also competed in acrobatic adagio with his sister for the duration of his high school competitive career.
Post graduation J remained on Allegro’s staff as a team coach and received many choreography awards, eventually having his senior hip hop team win 1st place at a national competition, securing a position on the US Team for World’s in Germany where they received 11th place overall. Soon after this he moved from his hometown to attempt to start his career in circus which first brought him to the Philadelphia area where he taught recreational classes at smaller schools and gymnastics centers. Eventually, this path brought him to Brattleboro where he is currently enrolled as a student in NECCA’s professional training program, though his love of dance is no less intense.
