Hip Hop Dance

Hip hop dance refers to dance styles, mainly street dance styles, primarily danced to hip hop music or that have evolved as a part of the hip hop culture.

These later styles are sometimes referred to as new school or new style while the older styles, including breakdance and various funk styles that were incorporated into hip hop, are considered old school.
Hip hop dancing is evolving in many different directions today, heavily influenced by the evolution of hip hop music and its popularity in media.
What distinguishes hip-hop from other forms of dance is that it is often "freestyle" (improvisational) in nature.

  • Just wanted to tell you and all your talented teachers & students what a wonderful benefit that was!! In all my years of being an "audience" participant I must say this was one of the most touching events I have ever seen :) What a show!! It was so moving to hear you compliment your staff & students & they truly outdid themselves :) Lots of talent in your studio & to think you planted the seed & they just grew and blossomed beautifully :) Looking forward to the Recital :)
