Andrew Sears

Hip Hop / Urban

The style of urban dance Andrew teaches incorporates strong clean lines and shapes from Street jazz, with the creation influenced from hip hop genres, popping, wacking, and old school grooves. The style is always influenced by the track and expression. It's often a lyrically based set of choreography following the musical arrangement and musicality of the song itself.

 

Having taught at some of Sydney's leading dance institutions such as Sydney dance company, urban dance Centre and Brent Street. Andrew has working credits including so you think you can dance, Jessica Mauboy and Deborah Cox.

 

Andrew has many years experience, teaching and choreographing and his intent is to pass his widely developed but unique skillset on to his students.
