      Teen Advanced Hip Hop Class

      Hip-hop involves a wide range of styles but is characterized by isolations (moving a certain body part independently from others), breaking, locking & popping. What distinguishes hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often freestyle (improvisational) in nature and hip-hop dance crews often engage in freestyle dance competitions, colloquially referred to as battles. Crews, freestyling, and battles are identifiers of this style. Hip Hop is a lot more relaxed and open to interpretation than Ballet or Jazz and emphasis is placed on more on musicality than technique – how you ‘feel’ or interpret the music. Hip hop is an entertaining and often humorous dance form set to current music (always age appropriate at Rise Dance Co).

      Alien Intrusion Screening

      Graham Philip brings you this special screening of Alien Intrusion on Wednesday the 28th of February at 6:45pm at Reading Cinema, Rotorua NZ! Millions of people have seen UFOs and many even recall personal encounters with strange entities. The popular view is that these are advanced aliens visiting us from far, far away. This compelling new film takes a deeper and honest look at the events, the beliefs, the experts, and the people that have shaped our views in all things otherworldly. The truth is more surprising than most people realise.

      Adult Contemporary Class

      Contemporary dance is not so much a specific dance technique as it is a compilation of different techniques. Contemporary dance involves integrating the mind/body connection with dance movements. There is an emotional connection to this style of dance and it is often quite deep and dramatic set to slower music. There is a lot of floor work in contemporary. Ballet emphasises a uniform look with perfect lines whereas contemporary is more open to interpretation with the dancer using gravity to pull them down, closer to floor level.
