Free, drop-in co-curricular classes for Fall 2020 are offered online! These classes are open to all University students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

As part of the Program in Dance’s fall 2020 co-curricular dance offerings, Lauren Auyeung leads a Hip-Hop Groove class.

This class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the course exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the course, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation.


To take advantage of our unique class offerings and virtually train with professionals outside of coursework, visit the Co-Curricular Offerings page for the Zoom ID for this class. Participants will need to log in to this page with Princeton University ID to gain access.


If you are in need of access accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Lewis Center at 609-258-5262 or email at least 2 weeks prior to event date.

LAUREN AUYEUNG is a dancer and choreographer based in New York City, and alumnus of Princeton University (Class of 2019). During her time at Princeton, she was an active spokesperson for the inclusion of hip-hop dance programming and representation in the Lewis Center. After choreographing her first full-length hip-hop dance-theater work, “Over-Exposure” for her senior thesis, she decided to pursue a career in the arts. This past year she lived in Philly and NYC, working with artists including James Cricket Colter and Marguerite Hemmings. She was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to continue her study of Hip-Hop at Trinity Laban Dance Conservatory in London. Lauren is grateful to continue giving back to the Princeton dance community through the Hip-Hop Co-Curricular Dance series.
