Intermediate/Advanced Breaking Intensive with Ives

Join @iceyives for his yearly Intermediate/Advanced Breaking Intensive at Mi Chantli! Tuesday, May 28th – Friday, May 31st from 9:00am – 3:00pm. The first day (Tuesday, May 28th) will be an intensive/conditioning day with our coaches.

The mission for this intensive is to provide a safe and judgment-free zone for individuals partaking in this course. As an instructor I recognize that vulnerability comes with the territory of learning, and we will all aim to foster an environment where we feel respected and encouraged to grow as dancers without compromising our identity. My goal is to empower students to reach their full potential and achieve their dance aspirations, while maintaining an inclusive and supportive community.

This course is designed for individuals seeking to elevate their craft and gain a fresh perspective on dance. As a someone who aspires to stay well rounded as a b-boy it will be my pleasure and honor to share everything I’ve learned on my journey. This intensive will involve touching base on: Musicality, Grooving, Top Rocks, Footwork, Floor Styles, Powermoves, Dance Mentality and more!
