Special Features


Editorial Reviews

If you want to learn Hip Hop, Kelly Peters will Make It Happen for you! Kelly’s "One Step at a Time" teaching method introduces new production techniques that make it easy to learn even the hardest moves. It’s simple to follow because he reverses the picture, so it’s just like looking at a dance studio mirror. As a result, when Kelly says "Go right", he moves to your right! He also takes time to break the movements down, very slow, so you don’t have to keep rewinding and he uses lots of close ups, slow motion, and split screen so you really get the details of the moves. Kelly teaches the building blocks of true Hip Hop which you can use to make your own combinations. He also explains the elements and history of Hip Hop culture. Kelly is joined by his crew of real kids who help demonstrate dances like The Freak, The Prep and the Bus Stop. The DVD includes special features and three bonus moves: The Harlem Shake, The Wave and The Baby Freeze.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best December 31, 2006
I have rented every single dance video for breakdancing, hiphop, and krump available on Netflix (about 30) and bought the rest(another 10). This one is the best for hiphop. Most hiphop videos teach you a routine that requires about half of a large room by yourself to do and no way would help you in any social situation. This video teaches you moves that can be done in little space like in a typical party. Most of the videos also have lots of jazz type moves that are a little ridiculous. Not this one. Finally, the instruction is slow and paced so you can actually learn the move rather than watch the blurr and try to decipher it with the various slow motions of the DVD player (which is too time consuming). I love this DVD.

If you like this one you might also like "Breakdancing Fundamentals" as it is another well put together DVD, albeit with a different style of dance. There are some other good breakdancing videos out there, but nothing decent in the hiphop genre that is practical and wellmade.

I beg Kelly Peters to come out with volume 2!!

5.0 out of 5 stars GENIUS! May 18, 2006

Verified Purchase
I don't normally write reviews, but this DVD is exceptional. I bought this dvd for my daughter & it is broken down so well that it is like you are actually in his class. I was skeptical as I have purchased other hip-hop DVD's before. Kelly Peters makes it unbelievably easy to learn these basic moves & some not so basic. Five stars, I'd give it more if I could.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC October 23, 2006
Verified Purchase
Excellent, easy to follow instruction and great, great fun. Split screen is right on target. Why hasn't anybody else done that? Most of the class seems to be comprised of kids in their youngish teens. I suspect that there are younger, pre-teens also learning from this DVD. Don't be put off if you're a grown-up. I'm in my fifties and simply wanted to Hip Hop around the house. Probably the best dance instruction video I've seen. Kelly Peters is a remarkable teacher. These kids are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with somebody so gifted.

4.0 out of 5 stars too basic .. good for kids ... May 12, 2007
By 537
I partially agree with one of the reviewers who gave this product a one star. This DVD is not for you if you are already into Hip Hop. It just "educates" you about hiphop and as the product description says, it teaches you the most basic building blocks of hip hop like The Freak, The Prep, the Bus Stop and a few other steps. Go for it if you haven't danced before.

I think the cover photo is misleading because it makes the dvd look more advanced. Read the product description well before buying it. Do not conclude anything just from the reviews and the DVD cover or title. I take out one star for the misleading cover and title.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm impressed! February 7, 2007
By B Dub
I have developed pretty low expectations for hip-hop dance videos, as so many of them seem to be produced in a garage or with production value like they're from the 70s or something. But this one is different. You will definitely be able to learn from this video as it is broken down quite well.

This is in my 3 favorite hip-hop instructional videos. This one is better for club dancing. For poplocking, check out How To Do The Robot - Breakdance Instructional DVD and for breakdancing, check out Top 20 Breakdance Moves.

good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet... March 19, 2007
I have done other dance videos that are labeled "hip hop", however have rarely come across one that lived up to the title. This one does- hands down. Another one I would recommend if you're interested in this one is "Hip Hop Shop" for a more introductory level taste.

You can see a preview of Kelly Peters DVD on his website as well if you want more information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reality Vs Impressions July 3, 2007
This video was decent at best. The dance instruction was very well done; however, the dance moves themselves were somewhat bland and basic. The dance moves seemed more fit for young teens or children and would probably be considered embarassing if an adult ever performed these moves in public. The video is more basic than I imagined, and it stays basic throughout the entire video. The bonus moves at the end were cool though.

Volume 1 of the "Make it Happen" series, Make It Happen: Hip Hop is an introductory DVD guide to learning the cultural phenomenon of hip-hop dance. Dance instructor Kelly Peters reveals his "one-step-at-a-time" method, broken down slow so the viewer won't need to rewind. With close ups, slow motion, split screen, and a reversed picture just like a dance studio mirror (when Kelly says "Go right," he moves to your right) help one learn hip-hop moves to perfection. Kelly Peters also discusses the history of hip-hop culture. Make It Happen: Hip Hop is a "must-have" for anyone looking to learn or improve basic hip-hop dance skills. 55 min., color.

I think this DVD is popular because Kelly Peters explains the moves quite well, and since the moves are really basic, nearly anyone can pull them off. Read more

Well done. Easy to follow. I would have given 5 stars if he didn't actively endorse graffiti, which is rather shameful.
