Students at Charter Oak International Academy in West Hartford, are learning about hip-hop culture, dance, music and urban art. Austin Dailey, CEO of Red Supreme Productions, a DJ and dance entertainment business, has been teaching hip-hop dance moves during gym classes this week. The school is using grant funding for the program, titled Move It! Groove it! Create it!: A Hip Hop Experience, from the Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools and Whole Foods Market. On Wednesday, Dailey taught a group of fifth-graders several moves like the top rock, the knee drop, the swipe, the 6-step circle, the crab and the freeze. He also stressed the importance of stretching and building core strength to master the moves. On Thursday night, the school is holding a Family Dance Night, giving the students a chance to display their new skills and knowledge through artwork displays and dance performances.
