hip hop CLASSES

hip hop classes

At Body Politic, we have years of experience with running hip-hop dance programmes for young people aged 5-19yrs in Oxford.

Classes are led by experienced instructors from Body Politic. All our teachers work hard to create a safe and supportive environment where students feel empowered.

Classes are structured to include:

  • Learning choreography
  • Technique training
  • Opportunities to create your own moves and let your creativity flourish!
  • Performances

Classes run at two sites; Barton Park Primary School and at Pegasus Theatre. At the end of the 11-week term all groups get the opportunity to perform on stage at Pegasus Theatre!

This project has been funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.


We appreciate this might be your first time attended Body Politic classes so we have put together some FAQs to help. Please do contact us if you have any further questions.

What does my child need to wear?

Students need to wear comfy clothes they can move in and trainers.

What does my child need to bring?

A bottle of water is advised and any medication they might require i.e. inhaler.

Do classes run during school holidays?

Unfortunately, we only run sessions during term time. However, we sometimes offer special workshops or holiday provision. The team will ensure that this information is circulated to parents and young people.

Can parents watch?

We ask that parents do not come into the hall to watch as this is sometimes distracting for the other children. However, there is a sheltered seating area with a view directly into the hall.  Please note, this is outside so a warm coat is advised!

Can I get extra support for term fees?

Body Politic offers subsidised places for any young person in receipt of free school meals, or families recieveing child benefit or universal credit. Please email emj@bodypoliticdance.com for more information.

Our term time classes are delivered in partnership with Dancin’ Oxford. This project is supported by Youth Ambition (Oxford City Council) and Sport England.

“My daughter has been dancing with Body Politic for almost a year now. Her background is in ballet, lyrical and contemporary so she was nervous about starting initially. But thanks to the teachers her nerves have totally vanished and have been replaced by genuine excitement each week! I’m so grateful for the opportunities that Body Politic present. It’s amazing to see her self esteem growing after each class.”

“My son enjoys the classes a lot and it is currently the only out of school/social network he has. It means a huge amount to us.”

This project is funded by Big Lottery, and supported by Dancin’ Oxford, Oxford City Council
