Developed by ex-boxer and fitness guru, Nate Bower along with professional dancer Danny Davalos, Drip50 alternates every two minutes between high intensity boxing and hip hop dance moves.

Initially Bower created Drip50 Hip Hop boxing, as a YouTube video he could do with his son, Jaden. Being a former boxer and his son a great dancer, it seemed to be a great way for the two to share their fitness and talents to the world in an online workout. The similarities, and differences, between boxing and hip hop makes it a very interesting dynamic with lots of room for creative growth.

Enter Danny Davalos – a well-known Toronto choreographer and owner of O.I.P Dance Centre. Taking choreography he used with mega stars like Rihanna, Ricky Martin and Shakira, Davalos and Bower fused the intensity and power of boxing with the rhythmic energy of hip hop dancing, to create a high intensity workout that’s always changing.
