Words from Ivan about his class
I believe creativity should be harnessed at a young age. I aspire to encourage kids to think of different ways to do a similar move. Breakdance is a “non-textbook” dance style that promotes thinking out of the box which would then permeate into their everyday lives to stand out be it in studies or in future careers. Furthermore, through the various breakdancing techniques, kids can stand to have better physique and body balance promoting a healthy wholesome lifestyle.
