    Mastering hip hop is all about practice in my opinion. If you want to up your hip hop game then you must have isolation skills, precision as well as good coordination.

    Watch videos of hip hop dancers closely. You will learn a lot by studying hip hop dancers and will be able to differentiate between the good and not very good dancers. This will help you understand what you should and shouldn’t do while dancing. Generally, good hip hop dancers have great isolation skills, so you should work on that.

    To master isolation skills you will have to practice no matter what. To improve isolation you can start practicing it at home as much as you can, this will help your body get accustomed to it. If you think of it, isolation is very similar to the hip hop technique so it will help you in mastering hip hop.

    Many renowned hip hop dancers like Les twins and Michael Jackson have talked about what one should do to learn hip hop. Michael Jackson has often said that people make the mistake of thinking while they are learning to dance. You should not think much but enjoy the dance. Les Twins have also said something similar. According to him, one shouldn’t think too much about various techniques, all you need is dedication.

    Old hop dance isn’t very popular now, it has evolved a lot over the years. Hip hop isn’t restricted to any technique, there is scope for innovation in techniques. If you notice you will find that hip hop these days has borrowed various dance styles. You should experiment and try to blend any dance style with hip hop. You can learn street jazz, reggae and c-walk, as it will elevate your creativity level. I have also noticed that hip hop dancers use footwork, pelvis and core movements to make the dancing look more good. But the most important thing is to believe in yourself and enjoy yourself as you dance.
