    damnn...i called def dance studio in Guro Digital Danji and their popping classes start from MWF 6:30 and TTH 7:30...i work every weekday from 4-10...FML!! but they have 1 on 1 teaching lessons twice a week but costs $420 a month rofl...the regular classes are $120. They have hip hop weekend classes tho, i might check it out today or the following week. If anyone is currently taking any poppin/hip hop classes, let me know how it is~

    I went to Defdance and took the regular class for Hiphop. It was such a disappointment, they didnt have other classes other than beginners and if i wanted something more difficult that beginners, I had to pay for private lesson which was insanely expensive. So I paid about 18,000 or 20,000won (can't rmb) to join the regular class.
    It was one and a half hrs long and the first hour was spent on simple warmup and stretching, and a little bit of basics. Such as bounce, etc.

    And then when we were finally learning the choreography, i was disappointed again because we only learnt 1 count of 8 for the whole class! I mean, i dont blame the instructor cos everyone else (the regulars in class) were super beginners so they couldn't catch the steps.

    honestly, i thought defdance would be able to offer something more challenging. well....

    if anyone else knows of any other studios that are more challenging, please let me know!

    really? which class did you go to?

    ive been going to def dance since jan. last year, and the weekend hiphop class has always been a bit challenging in terms of the choreo we learned
    there IS a class that is more challenging, although its more expensive (20manwon for mwf, 15manwon for tt/weekend).

    you might want to check out winners because they have levels, but winners is def. more popular for popping than hiphop..i saw a few videos of their hip hop choreos and they didnt really interest me =/

    I went to Defdance at Gangnam last summer for Poppin', it was nice because it was a small class and the instructor one-on-one corrected your moves/posture/etc
