New Comox Valley dance studio Hip Hop Coalition is hosting open house with free hip hop dance classes on Sept. 9 and 10.

Have you ever wondered what dance hall, house, popping, locking, or new and old school is? Have you ever wondered what you would do if you ended up in a freestyle circle? What is a freestyle circle?

Artistic director Anna Mayo aims to answer these questions and more through her new classes starting this fall. The Comox Valley native is an award-winning choreographer who has been immersed in hip hop dance for the past 15 years and wants to share her love of the style through Hip Hop Coalition Dance. The mission: unity through dance.

“I am thrilled to be able to introduce this exciting and vibrant dance culture in a platform that is accessible to all ages and all levels of student, from beginner to advanced,” said Mayo.
