Hip-Hop

Hip-Hop is a mix of today’s high-energy street dancing. It is designed to teach coordination, strength, and endurance. It refers to a style of dance primarily danced to Hip-Hop music or that have evolved as part of Hip-Hop culture. This includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping which were developed in the 1970s by Black and Latino Americans. What separates Hip-Hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often improvised and Hip-Hop dancers frequently engage in battles (informal freestyle dance competitions). Informal freestyle sessions and battles are usually performed in a cipher, “a circular dance space that forms naturally once the dancing begins”. Freestyle, battles, and ciphers are key components of Hip-Hop dance.
The dance industry responded with a studio-based version of Hip-Hop sometimes called new style and jazz funk. These styles were developed by technically trained dancers who wanted to create choreography for Hip-Hop music. Because of this development, Hip-Hop dance is now practiced at both studios and outside spaces.
To some, Hip-Hop dance may only be a form of entertainment or a hobby. To others it has become a lifestyle: a way to be active in physical fitness or competitive dance and a way to make a living by dancing professionally.
