My name is Randy R.C. Connor, choreographer to the stars. I've worked with Britney Spears, P. Diddy Combs, Prince, Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson, Jay-Z. We're gonna just break down some moves, that you can use at the club, at the parties, at home, in your bathroom -- just have fun guys, so let's get started. C'mon! I believe there is no specific definition for hip hop choreography in this time, some folk maybe disagree with me but when you listen to hip hop music, whatever you create from that is a hip hop choreography, you feel whatever comes through you and out of you, that's what you feel and that's what it is because the mark is so diverse is like hip hop music has change whether is crump in, whether is breaking, whether is hip hop jazz whether is tri-jazz, whether is modern, whether is the wu-tang, is something you create from you bathroom just put it out there it could become a smash it could become a hit, you know you create but there are some basic fundamentals in regard to hip-hop itself the culture, but as far as the hip-hop choreography you just have to believe in yourself and in what you do and be true to yourself and to the music, and the rest speak for itself.
