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.

Most of the class seems to be comprised of kids in their youngish teens.

Some say this video only gives you the basics, but unless you wants to be a really showy dancer, you'll get an excellent repertoire moves.

I bought this dvd for my daughter & it is broken down so well that it is like you are actually in his class.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Kelly Peters' Make It Happen video is great for children and adults alike who are interested in hip-hop dance but have never taken a class before. I bought the DVD knowing absolutely nothing about this style of dance other than what I had seen on music videos. Though, as I recently found out, Kelly is a dance instructor for children, it didn't make much of a difference for this video. In fact, I think it's better that way. The kids that dance in the background with Kelly are absolutely amazing, and gave me more energy and, perhaps, hope, than a group of 30-something pro dancers whose level of difficulty I feel I could never reach in my lifetime. Kelly Peters is a fantastic teacher who not only shows you some of the basic, classic hip-hop moves you can use to make your own combination (though they are not moves I would use to go clubbing or anything like that), but the history and elements of hip-hop culture as well. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and you'll find yourself hungry for more when the video ends.
Never have I done a dance video with as good of instruction as this one. With other dance videos I've bought, I get extremely frustrated with how fast they go through the steps and get annoyed with having to constantly rewind, pause, and change to slow motion. Not only does Kelly go through each step very slowly and thoroughly, but there's also a split screen that makes the moves even easier to understand. Here's how the split screen works:

On the left side of the screen is a view of Kelly from behind,
like if you were standing behind him in a studio.

The right side of the screen gives you a front view of Kelly that is
like looking at a mirror. So instead of doing the opposite of what
he does, you mirror him exactly.
