“I would do Hip Hop Don’t Stop again and again. It was a really fantastic experience. The atmosphere was so great… I couldn’t stop smiling! This was my 4th time but I found it the most useful. I’ve been dancing for a while but was so terrified of freestyling… This event has changed my attitude completely! I’ve done it 3 times before and absolutely loved it! Absolutely fantastic!! Hip Hop Don’t Stop was inspiring and so worth the money!”

Our unique 3 step method...

1 Foundation

The techniques you learn have been passed down by the pioneers of Street Dance themselves (sometimes they even teach at the event!) Making sure you have the right moves is only half the story. The other side to a solid foundation is self belief and confidence in what you do. We will show that you can achieve anything you set your mind to and open your eyes to real deal authentic Street Dance movement. After the event you will feel twice as confident as you develop a much deeper understanding of everything to do with Street Dance culture.


2 Progression

Once you learn the foundations the next step is to create new movements with it. Working with our elite instructors you will experience brand new movements and variations you would never have seen before. Every instructor brings a new element to every Hip Hop Don’t Stop event so you will always have something BRAND NEW to learn. The speed of your progression will sky rocket as you immerse yourself in a positive can-do environment.


3 Freedom

Your own individual sense of flava and feeling is one of the most unique aspects of Street Dance culture. Once you have the foundations, you will feel confident and knowledgeable. It’s now time to start exploring your own moves and individuality within the dance. Guided by our Masterful instructors you will be invited to create and develop your own movement and you’ll feel super confident about your dance ability and how you like to perform the steps. When you reach this stage you’ll experience a unique sense of freedom and liberation that is unlike anything you’ve felt before.

Leading from the front

Hip Hop Don’t Stop is led by one of the world’s leading Street Dance educators and our Founder, Andy Instone. Andy has spent the last 15 years travelling around the world learning from the pioneers in every Street Dance style so he understands more than anyone what it takes to transform your dance ability, knowledge and confidence.

“Hip Hop Don’t Stop was born from a desire to give the most up to date, important and inspirational Street Dance experiences to our students so they could transform their dance ability and confidence levels in a matter of days. We hand pick the very best instructors and judging by the overwhelming feedback we receive at the end of each event we seem to be doing the right things in the right way”

Andy Instone
Urban Strides Founder
Creator of The world’s only accredited authentic Street Dance teacher training level 4 diploma

What the professor says..

“Urban Strides energy and enthusiasm are infectious, What an inspiration! Founder Andy Instone and the team at Urban Strides sets high standards and leads by example, they are supportive and encouraging to those needing help and are able to deliver a very powerful message to our people”

Professor Valsa Koshy Head of Education– Brunel University

What our international instructors have to say...

“Andy Instone’s passion drew me to the event. I saw Andy’s work and how passionate he was about educating the truth about Hip Hop. In Hip Hop dance there’s so much dilution of the culture out there, so when I see an organization like Urban Strides who are teaching the truth and are committed to helping the art form then I want to help support the Urban Strides movement. If I can be a part of that then I feel privileged. I found everyone so welcoming and open it was just pure love! You don’t get that at many workshops. At Hip Hop Don’t Stop you get to really share and exchange with the students, With the quality of instructors you’re getting at Hip Hop Don’t Stop I’d come as a student and learn! There’s too much knowledge here!”

Kind words from our celebrity friends

Myself and Channel 4 needed some Street Dancers for the opening of one of our shows and Urban Strides was our 1st choice. Working with Andy and the Urban Strides team is always a pleasure, he makes the whole process a lot of fun and ensures we get a high quality performance at the end. He put me and my team at ease and before we knew it we were dancing like pro’s! We needed humour in the piece and Andy’s flexible nature meant we could create something funny we thought the audience would enjoy. His creative suggestions and execution was spot on. I would heartily recommend Andy and Urban Strides for any Street Dance experience whether it’s the opening of a TV show, the Royal Variety performance or a Street Dance Camp. Urban Strides make it fun, positive and an exciting experience-with their incredible passion and professionalism you can't help but want to get up and dance!
