Hip-Hop refers to dance styles primarily danced to Hip-Hop music, or dance that evolved out of the Hip-Hop culture. Because of how it was formed and how it’s being practiced, it is considered a street dance. This means, with or without a formal dance background, whether or not you’ve had the resources to have been dancing since you were four, you can dance this style! Today, many classes practice elements of various Hip-Hop dances, often mixing them with more structured dance styles such as Jazz. Being such a broad genre, it gives students room to interpret the movements in various ways.
Although Hip-Hop classes are fast-paced and challenging, it allows each dancer to emphasize their creative rhythmic talents. Hip-Hop dance is a popular form of dance that incorporates street style dance with choreographed expression. Hip-Hop is the style that you see in the pop music videos.
