Hip Hop at Chaffee Trail
Led by Jacqareon Peterson-Thomas
Students must be enrolled at Chaffee Trail Elementary School to register for this course. Students will develop muscle memory and learn rhythm, coordination, musicality and choreography through age-appropriate movement and music. Hip hop encompasses many different urban dance styles, as well as freestyle movement to give students the opportunity to develop their own sense of style. Students will be challenged to think on their feet while enjoying an energetic upbeat class.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
