Got Hip Lift? -

The Hip Lift Technique can be used by Professional & Amateurs alike!

The purpose of the American Style Dance Camp is to deliver a weekend of seminars that provides a concentrated opportunity to learn from the very best American Style  lecturers, including lecturers teaching the American Rhythm Style Hip Lift Technique as developed by Sam Sodano.

Unlike other American Rhythm congresses or seminars where a variety of differing approaches and opinions are presented, our Rhythm Camp lecturers will all be teaching the Hip Lift Technique.  We feel this unified approach to American Rhythm will help teachers and students alike.

The Hip Lift Technique applies to all the Rhythm dances.  Learning in a concentrated forum from lecturers who agree on the Hip Lift Technique will facilitate both professionals and amateurs to progress more quickly.

The Hip Lift Technique was developed by Sam Sodano over a six-year period. Sam tested his theories on Decho Kraev and Bree Watson, who became 3 Time U.S. Rhythm Champions using the Hip Lift Technique.
