Street Dance

Description

Street Dance includes a huge range of street styles that relate to modern Hip Hop culture which encompasses music/rap/DJing and Graffiti.

This thrilling dance style traces its roots to New York in the 1970’s when breakdance emerged. From the mid 1980’s Hip Hop began to develop inspired by the complex rhythms and the down-to-earth movement styles of African Dance.

As Hip Hop started to spread worldwide through media, films and music the tempo and style constantly changed throughout the decades.

Hip Hop Freestyle emerged in the late 80, predominantly linked with Club or Party dance, while other sub-styles developed in different US states. For example, Locking and Popping originated in the 1970’s in California when Funk music became widely popular.

These and other styles are now more frequently called Street Dance which is appropriate as it is the ‘street’, not dance studios where the moves originated.

Street Dance offers fantastic scope for freedom of expression. It continues to evolve and adapt to popular culture. This makes it one of the most exciting dance styles as well as one of the most popular genres to learn.
