We love the Hip Hop Fundamentals! Cannot stress enough how wonderful this show is. The performers are so professional, not to mention talented, kind and gracious. They are able to bring the culture Hip Hop to life in an educational and extremely energetic way! Not only were the children  totally engaged in the show, but they involved the staff, as well! The message of respect, cooperation, and participation was fully received! Thanks to these wonderful talented teaching performers!!!! Woo hoo!!!!

I just got back to the office after attending the Hip Hop Fundamentals assemblies as my sons' school.  What a fantastic show!  Both assemblies ("The Principles of Hip Hop" for the younger students and "Having Fun Civil Rights Movements" for the older ones) were informative as well as entertaining, and the performers did a great job tailoring their approach to the age of the students in thew two audiences.  And each of the performers/dancers were warm, funny, patient and professional.  It was a pleasure to work with all of them. I've no doubt that when we look back on the 2013/14 school year Hip Hop Fundamentals will be considered the best assembly of the year by both students and faculty alike!

This was an outstanding performance. The performers were skillful, professional, exciting to watch and understood their audience completely.  The students say it was the the best performance of the year.  They are enjoying writing about the show and were very interested in reading the study guide that was provided prior to the show by Hip Hop Fundamentals.

The performers were so polite and professional.  They were very knowledgeable about Hip-Hop and relayed the information to the students in a way that was informative, at their level, and made it sound really cool.  There was so much student interaction and they were engaged throughout the entire assembly.  They taught the students some great dance moves and taught them about respect.  I would love to have them back again and would recommend this show to anyone!

The three guys that performed were awesome.  They were respectful and engaged and entertained the kids.  They are also excellent athletes and artists. The entire 5th grad class enjoyed them immensely. It was a great send-off for them as they move on to a new school in the Fall.

The energy and skill of the performers was top notch!  We enjoyed the program - all grade levels K-4 were able to participate and were enthusiastic about the performance.  The message of respect is one we cannot drive home enough with our young students -- thank you, Hip Hop Fundamentals!

We got a lot of good feedback from the 7th graders after our show.  They said they liked the music, they liked the learning about the history of Hip Hop. I received alot of thumbs up as they were heading back to their classes.  The two gentlemen did a great job of keeping the students attention, also the some of the teachers really got into the music.  Great show and hopefully we'll be able to bring them back next year for our 7th graders.  Thank you!

Steve and "Metal" were a great team! The students and the teachers had a fantastic time with their program. Both performers interacted extremely well with the students and staff. The students were so engaged that even staff from our cafeteria came in to see what was happening. The content was informative and appropriate for all. Steve and Metal even took the time for questions at the end of their second show. Thank you for an awesome end of the year program!

This is the third year that we used Hip Hop Fundamentals and they were awesome!  Steve, Metal and Panda performed in two assemblies for our freshmen and they had them engaged for the entire presentation.  They even had a question and answer session for the students at the end of each assembly.  The students were still talking about their performance on Monday and how much fun it was.  They will be coming back again next year!

Enjoyable, students loved it, thought talking about history of the dance with respect, blending cultures, etc. were important messages for students.

Our students have expressed that they very much enjoyed the show!
The performers were wonderful, talented and very professional. Some of our students, who normally do not volunteer, were eager to raise their hand and show off some of their own moves! Our school thanks you for offerring such a fantastic opportunity!
