Finally, You'll Have a Step-By-Step Plan To Immediately Reach Your Breakin' Goals...

QUICKLY, SAFELY, EFFICIENTLY

You and I can agree...

That learning how to break can be a daunting task. With so many options to choose from, such as studio dance classes or online tutorials, your #1 biggest question should be...

What method of learning will work best?

There are really only 4 options that you should consider when it comes to learning how to break...

Taking class: You can sign up for a class at a studio near you that offers a breakin class. In these classes you will usually have a different mix of people from class to class and the teacher will most likely teach something that caters to the majority skill level of the class. This is not an ideal environment for someone looking to learn and master skills that are at their current skill level because of the random lessons that will be taught from class to class

Online tutorials: You can search for breakin tutorials online, such as YouTube, to learn specific breakin moves. These will be taught by a mix of different people with different levels of dancing and teaching experience. This type of learning is good if you can find a good video with an experienced dancer and teacher. However, these are usually hard to find and they will not help you progress because you are not learning moves in a structured order and you will be missing out on key things that you should have known before learning a movement at random (you cannot run before you know how to walk). Also, by learning only by online tutorials, you will never know if you are doing a movement correctly, which could lead to wasted time practicing a move incorrectly or worse… injury.

Online Courses: You can search for courses online that take you through a specific path to learning Breakin (whether it’s teaching you basic Toprock’s to teaching you moves to execute a whole combination). Courses like these are good when you can find an experience teacher who understands what they are teaching and how to teach it, because it takes you through a structured progression from one movement to the next (similar to school course) unlike online tutorials you find on YouTube. This is a great option to learn in a logical manner, but you may be missing out on key things like feedback as to whether you are performing a move correctly.

But the number #1 method I suggest to anyone serious about learning how to break and looking for a way to reach their dancing goals as quickly as possible is...

Private One on One lessons

What Are Private One on One Lessons

Private lessons will lead you by the hand step by step through movements in a structured order catered to your personal skill level. You will be able to ask questions and receive corrections that are specific to you.

You can choose from 2 different types...

In person private lessons, where you find an experienced teacher near you to meet up with in person

Or...

Online private lessons where you find an experience teacher who does not necessarily have to live near you and you meet online via Skype or some other video streaming service to have your lessons

 

Why Private Lessons Are Right For You

Private lessons are much better than studio classes and online tutorials for three reasons:

  • Private lessons focus and cater to you and your specific skill level and go at your pace where studio classes have to cater to the skill level of the majority of the class and online tutorials are simply movements that you may or may not be ready for
  • Private lessons can teach you in a way that works specifically for you while studio classes and online classes usually only teach in a way that the majority of people can understand (everyone learns differently so it is important that you are taught in a way that works for you)
  • Every time you meet for your private lesson, you can be assured that your lessons will build off of what you previously know and learned (meaning you can progress every time you have a lesson) while studio classes can vary on what is being taught, leading to random progress (if any) and online tutorials are just teaching you movements without any progression

Imagine...

You make the right decision to take private lessons to learn how to break. Every lesson you take with me, you are sure you are learning the correct technique the first time. You start to master your movements through drills made specifically for you. Your skill level continues to improve. Your vocabulary of different movements increases. You start to understand how to piece together your movements to create your own combinations. All of your questions you have are answered right away. Your confidence in you dancing is through the roof...

Why You Should Take Lessons With Me

If you haven't been around the Hip Hop Community, then you might not know that I have spent the last 13 years teaching and training dancers of all skill levels (complete beginners to dancer who have hit a training wall) how to break.

But I also started as a complete beginner...

It all began when I was just a shy kid in middle school just trying to fit in. I suddenly had this huge interest to learn how to dance…

ok it was to impress a girl...

but I set out to try to learn how to dance.

Now being a shy introverted kid, I lacked the self confidence to join a dance studio and take dance classes (there wasn't any Breakin' classes for me to take near me anyways). I flat out just thought of the worst and most horrible things that would happen to me...

I’m going to look stupid, people will laugh at me, I won’t be able to keep up, worst of all a girl would see me looking stupid and laugh at me as I was struggling to keep up. So I turned to the internet to find some dance lessons online.

Now, this was before the time of Youtube tutorials so i ended up stumbling across some VHS tapes… Yes, I know… what’s a VHS tape? Anyways, I ended up purchasing those videos (the best purchase I have ever made) and spent hours and hours learning and practicing from those videos at home.

Fortunately for me, this was a great jump start to my 13 year dance career where I now dance, train, and perform with some amazing dance companies in the Hip Hop Community such as the Kinjaz, Culture Shock Los Angeles, and Kaba Modern.

Unfortunately for me however, I did not discover that I was executing some of my movements the wrong way until much later in my dance career which led to lots of time (I’m talking months) trying to unlearn my “bad habits” (some I still have to this day) and even led to a few injuries (knee surgeries = no fun). Needless to stay, this was not the most ideal path for reaching my goals and I wish I had invested the time and money to find someone to guide me through my Breakin' training.

Fortunately for you

I have spent 13 years years teaching students (beginners to advanced) how to breakdance and have learned what methods of teaching work and which methods flat out don’t.

I understand that not every person learns the same and sometimes all someone needs is to have a movement explained in a different way or shown a different way to approach a movement to fully understand it.

I am here to make sure that you get started on the right foot and guide you through your training so that you can continuously improve and master your movements as quickly, safely, and efficiently as you can to reach your goals.

Here's What Previous Students Have To Say...

"Darren is super approachable, friendly, and responsive to his students. He helps you out individually if you are struggling with any aspect of a move, and makes you feel very comfortable. I could not recommend Darren more as a breakdance instructor. I gained so many skills, and how awesome move to show off to friends who would never expect I could’ve learned how to breakdance.”

"With both an incredibly friendly personality and patient instruction, Darren made the class incredibly enjoyable. Admittedly, certain aspects were naturally challenging, but even so, his classes made every challenge entertaining and rewarding. Every move, every set, and even just instruction on how to make the moves match beats was clearly broken down. Whenever something was unclear or needed work, Darren was very reassuring in offering constructive criticism. By the end, I found myself able to transfer the confidence I had garnered from my beginner’s breakdancing into other aspects of my life. I continue to recommend Darren’s classes to many of my friends. In fact, I still recommend him as teacher even now.”

"I liked how Darren really broke down moves step by step, explaining every aspect like weight changes/shifts, hand placements, and whether a certain step should be on a snare or bass. Also, he was good at explaining how some moves could transition to other moves and how to do variations of the same move to add style and dynamics. Not only did his class help give me a basic working knowledge of how to do certain moves, but now I can watch other bboys in ciphers and understand how to observe another person's style of flow, footwork, toprocks…”

"Darren is really easy to learn from. He goes through each move step by step slowly at first then increases the speed and steps as he completes the moves. He has a lot of energy when he moves and he's REALLY COOL to watch dance and do his thing. It inspires you to want to move the way he does. Also he's really patient when he's trying to teach you how to move. If you really just don't understand, just let him know and he will make sure you get it until you can do it yourself. I'm a slow learner, and apparently learned some of the moves backwards so he set me in the right direction when I asked him. My confidence in dancing improved and definitely motivated me to keep looking for more opportunities to dance elsewhere after the class. Overall, I highly recommend Darren as a teacher because he is passionate, easy going, fun to talk to and even funner to learn from. If you want to get a good start on how to loosen your body to learn to dance or even just hone your skills and get better at breakdancing he's your guy. Through the lessons and training you may even develop core strength, creativity, confidence, etc... It's a win/win.”

Here's The Deal

I have spent 13 years figuring out how to teach and correct techniques so you don’t have to

Waste your hours questioning why you don’t look the way you want

Waste your hours spent practicing a move over and over again and getting no where

Waste your hours waiting to train again because you injured yourself.

I want to help you master movements with perfect technique and get you to your goals as quickly, safely, and efficiently as possible.

I want to give you personal corrections to your technique (which would normally cost you $10 for per movement for a technique critique from me)

I want to give you drills to help you practice your movements (which I normally reserve for my courses costing anywhere between $60-$100)

I want to give you exercises, warm ups, and stretches to make sure you prevent injuries as best as you can (which will save hundreds of dollars in medical fees)

I want to provide you all of this for...
