Today we were lucky enough to have a Krump workshop with Godson. Krump stands for Kingdom Radically Uplifted Mighty Praise. It is a style within street dance that is characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement involving the arms, head, legs, chest, and feet. The youths who started krumping saw the dance as a way for them to escape gang life and “to release anger, aggression and frustration positively, in a non-violent way.
Today krump has evolved from the battle scene and grown into showcasing so it is now translated into choreography. Within the workshop today we looked at Krump basics and practiced techniques within drills and choreography. All of the students who took part in the session thoroughly enjoyed it and was a great opportunity for them to learn something different. Like any style of dance it takes time, effort and hard work to progress so hopefully the girls will take a lot from it and practice 🙂
Godson, one of this years Got to Dance 4’s finalists, took the workshop. It was clear he has a vast knowledge of the style and was very inspirational to watch as he spoke and danced with passion. I loved the session and can’t wait for the next one!!
