Here is how you can master the hottest, easiest to learn hip hop dance moves, learn to dance smoothly and naturally, and how you can become an amazing dancer in just a few hours, even if you have never danced before.
No experience necessary... no long and complicated routines. If you can account to 4 and follow simple instructions, then you can quickly become one of the best dancers in the club.
The secret is in the innovative way of teaching which cuts out all of the boring choreography and teaches you the simple, easy to follow moves to get you dancing tonight.
First we show you how each move looks full speed so you can "lock in" what you're about to learn . . . then we slow down . . . break every move into its most basic parts, and show you exactly how to "program" the move into your body so you can do it on demand, without even thinking about it, the moment you get out on the dance floor.
Hip Hop Basics and Beyond is jam packed with so many dance moves we had to make it a two disc set.
First, You'll Get Hip Hop Grooves. You'll learn how to groove your body and flow from move to move without even thinking about it. You'll learn how to add simple style to every step and you'll learn today's hottest hip hop moves in an easy, no fail way.
Hip Hop Past and Present is the second disc you'll get and you'll learn the hottest, the most iconic moves you've seen your favorite celebrities do. You'll learn must know party moves like the Dougie, The Shuffle, Biz Markie, Stanky Leg, The Freak, and our brand new take on the Moon Walk!
You'll learn how to make even the simple act of walking into the club into a hot, attention grabbing maneuver and you'll draw everyone's eyes to the line of your feet like a tractor beam when you bust out this amazing footwork out on the dance floor!

1. Instruction: I could not learn from this guy unless the move was so basic I could learn it by mimicking the move. He tells you to mirror him but then uses the wrong foot, confuses you by saying things like follow with this foot and then land on that foot… WHAT are you thinking? Did you watch this yourself before you put it on the market? What a joke.
2. The actual moves: Some of these moves are flat out hilarious and would never be used in any hip hop venue. A few others are so old-school that you may only end up using them to prove you know them (or when intoxicated). Its as if he came up with them himself in front of his bathroom mirror. The only moves that are somewhat worth while are the c-walk and the glide, but he teaches you only a portion of the c-walk, going constantly from one side and back again, staying in one small area of the dance floor and not actually “walking” anywhere as the move is suppose to allow for. Again though, good luck learning from this guy as he will completely confuse you as you try to follow along, especially when he teaches the glide, which I only learned by doing about a dozen rewinds and slow motions…
All and all I can say with certainty that this purchase was a waist both my money and more importantly my time.
Although I've not viewed other similar products for comparison, I have to say that Hip Hop Basics is good, maybe very good in that it delivers what I was looking for: hip hop steps. The surprise for me is the very deliberate structure which completely breaks down the steps making them very easy to understand & master. As a long-time skating coach, I appreciate both the effectiveness of this approach to instruction and its rarity.
The production is underwhelming but gets the job done.
This is a 3 camera How-To Dance in a static location. The vid quality is fine. The soundtrack is generic.
