Best Place to Find Your Hip-Hop Swagger - 2013
City Dance Studios
From waving and popping to windmills and head spins, City Dance is the studio of choice for S.F. street dancers. There are two open practice sessions a week, each hosted by luminaries of the local hip-hop scene: Groovmekanex pops and locks on Monday nights, and Soul Sector hosts mixed practices on Wednesdays. Classes in new and old school hip-hop are offered daily, and the teachers include members of award-winning dance teams like Funkanometry and Academy of Villains. And when street dance legends come to town, this is where you'll find them. City Dance hosted Electric Boogaloos member Mr. Wiggles and hip-hop globetrotters Les Twins for special workshops this year. Insider tip: don't call it poplockin'.
