Crystal Lake, IL -- Does your child love to dance? Does he/she want to learn new moves in an amazing and age-appropriate atmosphere? Does your family watch FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance?"

Hip Hop Explosion is a great chance to learn a short and exciting new routine each month from some of Chicago's hottest dance instructors! Then hang out with your friends, practice the fun routine, and just dance!

This event is offered from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, in the Sage Gallery of Lakeside Legacy Arts Park. Children, age 7 and older, are welcome. The color theme for this month is any shade of blue! (Tweens do not need to wear the color theme to attend.)

Tickets are $6 each.

No dance experience is required and the event includes learning a mini-routine, freestyle dancing time, and a mini-workshop on swing dancing. This program builds leadership skills, socialization skills, confidence in a fun and safe environment. Parents may leave their child at the two hour session but need to sign a waiver in order for their children to participate.

Visit to buy tickets, and all participants must sign the online waiver or download one and bring it signed to the event.

Hip Hop Explosion is located in the Sage Gallery at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park at the Historic Dole Mansion at 401 Country Club Road Crystal Lake. Call (815) 455-8000 or email for more information. This event is produced in partnership with Vicki Summers and the Summers Academy of Dance.
