The instructors at Hip Hop Heels have created four 60-minute signature classes that demonstrate sassy hip-hop moves and burlesque struts for all skill levels. Pumps and Grinds covers sensual body rolls, whereas Cabaret combines jazz moves with alluring shimmies and shakes. Go-Go Cardio tones legs with dramatic drops and other steps, conducted at varying speeds. Finally, L.A. Diva classes involve slightly more advanced glamorous routines. All the classes help women increase their confidence and stay fit, strengthening the core and sculpting the lower body and mid-section. Students can dance barefoot, in tennis shoes, or in comfortable boots with heels of up to 4 inches. Click here for a class schedule.
Hip Hop Heels
At Hip Hop Heels, high-heeled shoes aren't dainty accessories, but fierce dancing tools. Owner Geena Ngaaje encourages her students to don comfortable heeled boots for her signature classes, thereby increasing the workout for their lower bodies and injecting the choreography with style. Geena and her team practice a combination of hip-hop, street, and burlesque dance, often channeling the moxie of celebrities such as Beyoncé and Ciara. They also pull from personal experience as performers—their resumés list back-up gigs with the Black Eyed Peas, LL Cool J, and Pitbull.
Their sessions aren't geared entirely toward stars on the rise, however. Whether they're demonstrating sensual hip rolls during Pumps and Grinds or the seductive shimmies of Cabaret, they cater to women of all experience levels, from first-timers to fellow pros and animated characters that are drawn to dance. They also host workshops for beginners, which focus on becoming confident in heels. Private parties allow guests to choose their preferred dance style for a customized lesson, and special-event workshops cover entire routines, including holiday-themed performances set to "Santa Baby."
