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!

Unleash your passion

We believe in the four F's – Friendly, Fun, Fitness & Freedom! In Dancekool we provide a friendly environment for all whilst having fun, getting fit and feeling free as you learn the culture of hip hop!

Been here for over a year, and it's been amazing! I usually take breakdancing classes, and a few hip hop classes here and there to mix it up a bit. The teachers are very friendly and helpful that will work with whatever level you are at so they can break it down for you making it easier for you to learn! The atmosphere and environment is awesome, everyone is so friendly! I made a lot of friends from Dancekool and they are always so welcoming and nice. Would recommend!

Best studio in sydney !! Friendly staff and amazing teachers , everyone there is extremely supportive of one another it's like a second family there or even first for some :)
Offers beginners to open classes and has heaps of cheap deals for uni students.
Also they've moved to a newly built studio so it's nice and comfortable floorboards.
Would definitely recommend checking it out :)

- Jeremy T.

Absolutely enjoyed my class here! Will definitely visit again :) I felt a good mix of professionalism whilst also having a really fun time. Everyone (including the current/regular students) is super friendly. I hop dance studios regularly and dancekool is one of the best I have been too. 5/5

- Alex C.

Great place to learn dance! Offers a variety of Street styles that stay true to the origins and foundations of the dance. Great community too with lots of events and opportunities to practice your thing and probably the best floors in any dance studio to dance on! Very friendly and open to dancers of all levels. Most of the teachers are long time practitioners so they can guide you through foundations to be a confident dancer.

- Jackeline L.

I love Dancekool with all my heart, it's like our second home. Everyone is so nice especially Phi, Karen, Masaki and Hideboo. We love all the Teachers!

At Dancekool, I see my daughter Aleira feel so comfortable to come out of her shell. I see her talk to everyone like they're all her friends. Dancekool has helped her grow as a dancer and performer, and gain a lot of experience performing in front of many people. 
God bless DANCEKOOL <3
