Darren is a very professional dancer. I have enjoyed every lesson with him, and have learned a lot from him. He is also very approachable in personality. I would definitely increase the my lessons with him if he werent so busy with performances, lol.Nov 28, 2018Darren Wong's Hip Hop and Breakdance Lessons's reply
Thanks Ashley! Can’t wait for our next lesson 🤗
I greatly enjoyed my dance lesson with Darren. I'm a very shy person and have social anxiety, but Darren made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I learned SO MUCH in one hour. He was able to provide critiques while still being nice and encouraging. He was not at all intimidating. I think that's what makes him a great teacher. I had to quit our lessons due to personal reasons but, for sure, once I get things in order I'll be taking more dance lessons from him in the future. Thanks for such a good experience!Oct 31, 2018VerifiedDarren Wong's Hip Hop and Breakdance Lessons's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Establish a "syllabus" based on my students goals and abilities, train my students in an organized fashion to establish core fundamentals before moving onto the more "flashy" movements my students want to learn from the get go, motivate my students to keep practicing and not lose faith in themselves (this is a difficult dance style to learn, so students often become unmotivated or frustrated that they are not getting a lesson at first), create fun activities and drills to help my students learn fundamental lessons while enjoying themselves.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am heavily involved in the hip hop industry performing and teaching with renowned dance organizations like the Kinjaz, Culture Shock LA and Kaba Modern. I constantly see the newest and updated styles and movements of dance in this industry.
