With incredible energy and personalities to match, the dancers of Illstyle & Peace demonstrate that by perseverance and focus, you can reach your highest goals. Tracing hip hop dance styles from the late 70’s through today, this acclaimed ensemble teaches positive messages, including “Think It—Do It—Become It.” Become Your Dreams celebrates the art and movement of hip hop and includes a funky blend of locking, breaking, popping, tap and house dancing, vocal percussions,, and modern and traditional dance forms. An emphasis is placed on the similarity of some hip hop moves to those found in ballet, modern and traditional dance forms. In this show students also get to come on stage and share their own creative dance moves!
