Hip Hop Theme Week:
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. Though the dance is established in entertainment, including mild representation in theater, it maintains a strong presence in urban neighborhoods which have led to the creation of street dance.
Broadway Theme Week:
This theme is based on the Broadway-style of dance. Combining acting, singing, and musicality in a creative way through the use of classics and modern musicals.
Musical theatre is a form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical (humor, pathos, love, & anger) are communicated through the words, music, movement, and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.
Breaking, also called breakdancing or b-boying/b-girling, is an athletic style of street dance from the United States. While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, breakdancing mainly consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, downrock, power moves and freezes. Breakdancing is typically set to songs containing drum breaks, especially in hip-hop, funk, soul music and breakbeat music, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns
