Really? Is it really possible to learn to dance hip-hop online? That would be so cool. Imagine taking class when it’s convenient for you. No more rushing home from work, grabbing a protein shake, and trying to get to class on time.

Not a problem for online students. Replay any part of the class as often as you need to. There’s no judging, we understand. Repetition is the name of the game when it comes to learning any style of dance.

The face of DNCR Academy, Matt Stefanina, likes to call it a Global Dance Community for beginners, intermediate, and advanced dancers. As far as his credentials, according to the website, “Matt has become the most followed dancer online with over 11M subscribers on Youtube, 3.7M on Instagram, and 4.5M on Tik Tok.” Very impressive!

Steezy.co is a big operation that includes over 1500 online classes, programs, and more. They offer instruction in 12 different styles, from hip-hop, house, popping, locking, and even Salsa. If you have never tried dancing before, it’s recommended that you start with their program called Brand New. From there you move to Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes.
What’s really cool about this program is you have lots of control over how you watch the videos. For example, you can switch views and watch the instructor from the front or back. Also, you can control the speed, loop sections to play over and over while you work out the steps, and use your webcam to dance side-by-side with the teacher as you mirror his or her moves.
Here’s a YouTube video from one of steezy.co’s hip-hop instructors. It’s called Learn These 6 Hip-Hop Dance Moves. It’s cute and it’s pays tribute to the history of how some of these moves came to be. (Includes a link to steezy.co for the free sample lessons.)
Pay Steezy.co monthly or annually.
Take advantage of the free 7 day trial, then sign up for a Premium plan to get unlimited access to 1500+ classes. The monthly tuition is $20, however, you can save 58% with the annual billing of $100. That’s only $8.33/month. What a deal!
