[prMac.com] Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom - DogDog apps has released iStreetDance 1.0, a brand new series of four Apps designed to teach you street dance moves, grooves and techniques on your iPhone or iPod touch. Fusing classic and new street dance styles to a fresh and original soundtrack, iStreetDance is professionally filmed and is designed to get even the most timid of dancers learning a huge variety of steps, routines and tricks.
iStreetDance is grounded in an ethos of inspiring confidence and self-esteem in dancers at every level. What the creators love about teaching street dance is seeing people grow in confidence and suddenly doing something they never thought they could. The respectful and patient teaching style used throughout the apps ensures that each move, routine and trick is fully explained in detail to instill utter confidence at every step.
Your personal street dance teacher will be with you at every step of the way. The iStreetDance apps are inspired by dancing legends Mister Wiggles, Popping Pete and Michael Jackson, as well as contemporary icons such as Usher, Chris Brown and Beyonce, so you can ensure a stylish mix of moves and grooves. The original bespoke soundtrack comprises a range of R'n'B and hip hop beats to further enhance the dance experience. iStreetDance lets you capture the soul and swagger of street dance through your iPhone, provides a fun and fresh cardio workout and is guaranteed to build confidence and self-esteem with every shoulder groove and body wave!
Absolute Beginners starts by introducing the basic moves and attitude of the street dance style and is the ideal starting point for those who have never danced before or those wishing to understand the fundamentals of street dance. Beat counting, how to move to the music and rudimentary moves such as shoulder grooves, heel flicks and side steps are all covered here. Shake your iPhone for a random move and once you've mastered all twelve videos, 3 bonus videos are unlocked to give a flavour of the more advanced tricks to come!
The Beginners App assumes you know the basics and includes 3 original 24-beat routines, all combining a wide variety of moves, skills and differing dance vibes. Each routine is initially broken down into 4-beat sections to allow you to get to grips with each move. You'll find techniques such as tutting, toy man and isolation all included within the three routines to really start building your street dance arsenal!
Growing in confidence? The Intermediate App is a lot more challenging and includes 2 intricate 24-beat routines that incorporate gliding, popping, pauses, isolation and dancing on the "and" beat. Again you can watch each routine in small sections, review the entire routine up to a certain point and of course watch the full routine from start to finish to consolidate your moves and put them together. You'll be encouraged to add your own flavour and attitude to make your street dance style stand out from the crowd!
The Tricks App is designed to turn heads! The six tricks included here, which include the Up & Down Body Wave and the Hat Turn are guaranteed to impress, give your dancing the wow factor. Each trick is fully explained, presented in an easy to learn fashion, and come with ideas on how to apply each trick to your routine or your night out on the dance floor!
