As part of the Program in Dance’s spring 2022 co-curricular dance offerings, Sun Kim leads a class on Popping.

Curated by Princeton alum Lauren Auyeung ’19, 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.
