What is MT Afro Hip Hop?

 

 

MT Afro Hip Hop is a dynamic style of Hip Hop dance developed by American Choreographer, Sean McLeod. MT Afro Hip Hop combines the soul of traditional African dance, with the groove and freedom of Urban Social Dance. This exhilarating class includes traditional Jazz and Street Dance styles, and creates a strong sense of rhythm and timing.

 

 

What is the impact?

 

 

MT Afro Hip Hop speaks to all demographics through movement allowing them to embrace learning valuable life skills during this interactive class or workshop. Clients learn to accept failure as a mechanism for learning versus being embarrassed for frightened by the concept. All classes or workshops end with a McLeod Technique Talk Around where each individual speaks about what they learned that has nothing to do with dance - tying the skill-sets from the class into their day-to-day life.
