An Overview of Hong Kong Dance Moms’ Summer Dance Intensive: Studio Hopping 2019 

1.jpg

From Sha Tin to Central, our Studio Hopping 2019 event reached near and far, covering all sorts of dance styles across this great city of Hong Kong! Geared towards children, our week long Summer Dance Intensive gave students the opportunity to explore various dance forms and exposed them to different ways of teaching and learning. Not only did this event give young aspiring dancers a chance to learn some new moves, but it also opened up new possibilities for our local dance studios and schools across Hong Kong to share their wealth of knowledge, experience, and skills in dance education.

Connecting our local dance community, Hong Kong Dance Moms partnered with ten different dance studios to offer a variety of dance classes for children between the ages of 3-10. Making sure our event was accessible for all, we offered students the chance to select 5 different dance classes for a nominal fee. Bringing the world of dance to our very own backyard, students didn’t even need to go away on summer holiday to experience new cultures, as they learned Ballet, K-Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop, Kathak(Indian Classical Dance), Tahitian Dance, Belly Dance, Street Jazz, Urban Dance, and Musical Jazz.

Though these new encounters between dance teachers and students were brief, it was fantastic to see that this event created a bridge for dance studios and aspiring young dancers to meet and explore the possibilities in dance! Part of the journey of dance is in discovering new challenges, both the highs and lows. Though a child’s first step in dance may seem plain and simple, there is actually so much complexity to what they are experiencing. It’s not just about the dance steps they are learning, it’s also about the interaction between the student and their teachers, peers, parents, and their exposure to the body, different languages, vocabulary and space. Studio Hopping 2019 was one small step for dance and one giant leap for our participants!

We couldn’t help but break into a happy dance when we received so much buzz and interest in our event, we truly thank you all for your support! A big thank you to our partnering dance studios; Academy of Dance, BE Dance Academy, Dream Dimension, Ellumination Dance Studio, G-Kids Dance Academy, SGM Dance Production, Studio Assemblé, Trio Spin Studio, Twinkle Dance Company, and Yaya Kids Dance!

Founded in 2005, DC Ballet aims to promote ballet and is committed to providing a perfect learning path for school children. DC Ballet runs summer classes every year to provide a wonderful experience for children who have never studied ballet.

Originating from Egypt, Bellydance is a beautiful form of movement that is characterized by torso and hip movements. Through training and dancing in Bellydance, you will learn to articulate, coordinate and isolate the body and muscles .
