Those passionate about hip hop dance techniques can learn from one of the region’s best as Barton Student Life and the Barton Dance Department presents a masterclass by Kansas City artist SugEasy Singleton in two sessions at 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Oct. 8 in Studio 34 on the Barton campus. 

Singleton will teach authentic hip hop dance techniques, which will be followed by a question and answer session about the culture will follow the instruction. 

“SugEasy is a practitioner of all the creative elements of Hip Hop—Breaking, DeeJaying, Emceeing, Beat Boxing and Graffiti Writing. He has over 20+ years of teaching.  He started teaching when he was 15, then connected to studio format in 2001. He’s learned these skills from the original pioneers of this culture and he’s always on the move to learn more and grow more so he can constantly become a better artist and teacher. Mostly though, SugEasy invests his time in sharing his authentic knowledge with all people in the community–from many different races, ages, cultures, and backgrounds. SugEasy also toured for 12 years with the band Pomeroy, which opened up doors to share stages with Blink 182, LL Cool J, Neyo and many more,” according to SugEasy.
