Hip Hop originated in the Bronx, created by the Black community, incorporating Jamaican dance elements. Reminiscing of the old-school, this routine teaches the foundational moves of the Hip Hop routine. Hip Hop includes 3 basic elements; rock, bounce and groove. This 20-min set is known as "Soul Train". As the choreography works on beats and counts, you can dance these basic moves to any Hip Hop song you like! Here's a Hip Hop playlist Ezgilu recommends on Spotify and Soundcloud.
Ezgilu was born in in İzmir, Turkey in 1993. Since she can remember she was dancing and moving, but she fell in love with dancing when she saw Chris Brown’s ‘’Run It’’ music video. She started trying to imitate those moves and realized this was what she wanted to do. After some time learning dance in France, she won a Street Dance competition in Turkey in 2015 and went to New York sponsored by the American Embassy. Ever since she has competed in battles and competitions all around the world. In 2016, she did a yoga teacher training in Bali and in 2018, she worked with Sejong University in Seoul in Performing Arts. Ezgilu created her own ‘’movement healing’’ technique and calls it Space Playground . She specifically focuses on women healing and sexuality mindfulness. She has been continuing teaching and spreading the joy of movement all over the world.
