WHO'S UP FOR
HIP-HOP?



Coming soon to DE!  

Nate Braim, co-owner of 518 Break, will be offering a co-ed breakdance class along with Hip Hop for DE's older competition dancers.  Stay tuned for more details...(and check out Nate's bio below).

Nate Braim took Ballet, Contemporary, Lyrical, Musical Theater and Hip Hop classes when he started dancing. While a student, he choreographed his own routines as well as creating routines and performances for other local hip-hop artists/breakdancers. Shortly after he was introduced to Bboying (breakdancing) he fell in love with bboy style. Nate now trains over 10+ hours every week with new crewmates, learning and teaching each other. He has started to create his own style and is exploring his creative mind through movement. He and a partner own their own break-dance studio, teaching young dancers the fundamentals of bboying and helping them develop their own unique styles, while encouraging them to step outside their comfort zone. We look forward to Nate bringing DE something fun and new!

WELCOME, SERENA BUONTEMPO!

DE is happy to announce that Serena Buontempo will be teaching at our studio!  Serena is a friend of Hope, our former teacher and current SeaGal for the Seattle Seahawks.  

As a Maryland native, Serena competed and performed with her dance team in Bel Air, Maryland, since the age of seven. She found her love for the art years before when she began to dance at age three. From Ballet to Hip Hop, Jazz to Lyrical, she’s dabbled in it all. About 10 years ago, one of Serena's dance teachers predicted that she would one day walk the field as a professional cheerleader in the NFL, saying she had both the talent as a dancer, and the energy and spirit of a cheerleader. It seemed more like a fantasy at first, but Serena has since made it a reality.

As a Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader for the past seven years given Serena confidence and a sense of pride, knowing she was representing her city and her team. On the eve of her retirement, her teammates, organization, and fans selected her to represent the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleading team in Hawaii for the 2016 Pro Bowl.  Serena has also been a registered Dental Hygienist for the past four years and is extremely passionate about her career. While she misses the anticipation leading up to game day, preparing for the sidelines, and performing for thousands of fans, she knows that her passion for dance will always thrive no matter the venue.
