Course Description

Start learning how to Free Style dance in less than an hour! 

  • Are you afraid to dance in public?
  • Do you feel like you have no rhythm?
  • Do you like movies such as Step Up and dancers like Les Twins or Jabbawockeez and wish you coulddance like them? 

I get how you feel because I've been there.  

I know what i'ss like to feel like a wall flower while everyone else seems like they're having fun.  I also get how it is to feel little jealous of the dancers getting all the attention and wanting a piece of the action yourself. 

Whether you're someone who's looking to build their dance floor confidence or an experienced dancer looking to expand their creativity, Freestyle 101 is the perfect step-by-step course for you to start learning how to freestyle and become more confident in your own body. 

If you've taken classes, workshops, or watched YouTube videos but still feel like you're not making the progress that you want, I don't blame you for feeling frustrated.

Taking classes and learning new moves is great and all that, but if you're doing the same thing over and over, are you really freestyling? Are you really being creative with your moves? Or are you just a copycat of someone else?

There aren't a lot of teachers truly teaching you how to freestyle.

About your Instructors:

Emeroy has been teaching dancers of all ages, levels, and sizes since 2005. Throughout his years of teaching he's discovered patterns indicating where everyone struggles at first. He leveraged this to give everyone a basic starting point that jump-started many of his students. 

Emeroy also had the pleasure of touring with dance companies such as Antics Hip Hop Dance Company, Culture Shock Los Angeles, Mix'd Elements, and Family Bizness. 

"Emeroy always delivers and give amazing product. He guides you the best way he can to make you understand what your learning."

-Marc Miranda, Family Bizness Dance Crew

Cyrian has toured and worked with legendary artists and brands such as Ceelo Green, Beyonce, Nike, Reebok, the Minnesota Timberwolves Dancers and has worked on several TV shows.

She's had the opportunity of teaching hip hop dance at University of California, Irvine, Cal state Riverside, and Cypress College.

"Learning with Cyrian has probably one of the best experiences ever. She really teaches you how to get out of your box and be who you are."

-Ricki Pickering, Student at Cypress College

Their wide array of experience brought them together to make this course because they belive that one thing is for certain...

They both believe that no matter how old or young you are, how big or small you are, anyone can dance. 

With their combined experience of over 46 years, they show you step-by-step exercises and concepts that help you develop your own movement quality that helps you build the confidence to create a style that no one else can duplicate.

All this knowledge is compressed into to a simple, step-by-step, 1-hour course.

Cyrian and Emeroy show a series of concepts and exercises, along with worksheets that help you apply what you learned and they even provide music to help you get started. Simple as that.

Once you have a full understanding of the exercise we then show you how to slowly start building your confidence and how to implement it in a public setting.

You can learn how to freestyle at home today without ever stepping foot into a dance studio and with ZERO experience.

Our goal for you is this: 

Learn one of the many concepts and play with it so you can easily show off to your friends, family, or audience.

As mentioned. No experience is needed do for this course. 


  • Confidence on the dance floor beyond anything you've ever imagined
  • Being able to look like you've been working at it for months, when you've only been working at it for a few short weeks or less.
  • Being the center of attention when people see you on the dance floor.
  • How badass you would feel when people see you

Section 1: The Jump Off!

If you're wondering if Freestyle 101 is right for you, watch this.


Everyone has their own definition of Freestyling. Your instructors Emeroy and Cyrian are no different, which is why they came together to put this course together:

To combine two different philosophies for you to learn form.

Footage of Emeroy Freestyling
Footage of Cyrian Freestyling
Your Two Training Calendars and How Long To Practice
Section 2: Dance Dynamics
Direct & Indirect Movement
Sudden & Sustained
Light & Strong Movement
Free & Bound Movement
Section 3: Freestyle Concepts

These type of isolations are very different from how poppers do their isolations. This concept is a great warm up exercise in dancing and allows you to be more creative with limitations


A true Freestyler knows how to ride the beat. This means you know how to jump from the drums, to the bass, to the percussions, and to the vocals seamlessly.


Start implementing dance dynamics through using ABC's. Can you get through the entire alphabet without getting tired?


If you were told to dance like a chair, tree, cell phone, or spoon, how would you do it?


Unlike the stage, a cipher (freestyle circle) has an audience that surrounds you. Learn how to captivate the crowd without getting stuck in one orientation


Show case your best moves while mixing a little bit of freestyle.
