What is Hip Hop?
If you’re new to the world of hip hop, you may be wondering exactly what it is!
A central part of hip hop culture, hip hop dance refers to the dance styles performed primarily to music of the same name. Emerging from the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s, this dance style began on the streets; unlike most other dance styles, it was not developed in a studio. New moves were created and learnt on the streets where dance crews often ‘battled’ each other. Virtually every dance move you see today has its roots firmly planted in the streets of New York, Los Angeles, Fresno and other part of the United States.
Originally, there were three main styles: breaking, locking and popping. These styles were developed around the same time by different dance crews across America. Although they vary stylistically, each shares similar street origins and are improvisational by nature. It’s the ‘freestyle’ aspect of hip hop that distinguishes it from other forms of dancing; traditionally, dancers improvise as they go.
Popularised by the original dance crews and then by television and film, hip hop eventually found its way into the professional dance industry. Studio styles were developed, making it possible to create choreographed routines – and these styles often merged classic and new style moves.
Today, hip hop is performed both as entertainment and as a hobby. Professional dancers and children around the world learn how to break, pop and lock like the American street crews. People dance for many reasons: for fun and fitness, to enjoy the social aspect, to compete and even to earn a living. Hip hop dancing has well and truly reached the mainstream – providing Australians of all ages with the opportunity to take part in this fun and exciting culture.
Here at Dancekool, our studio blends new style and classic moves to deliver dance classes you’re bound to enjoy!
