Hip Hop dance is a popular, energetic & animated dance style that refers to ‘street’ dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music.

Hip Hop dance, a vibrant and energetic genre, has become a cultural phenomenon, celebrated for its animated style and dynamic movements. Rooted in the urban streets and influenced by hip-hop music, it originated in the 1970s and gained popularity through dance crews in the USA, evolving into an expressive art form that captures the essence of street culture.

The foundation of Hip Hop dance lies in its diverse styles, with breaking, locking, and popping being key components. These techniques, born from the creativity of street dancers, add an element of flair and individuality to the overall expression. Breaking involves acrobatic moves and floorwork, locking showcases sharp, distinct movements, and popping focuses on creating sudden, jerky motions—each style contributing to the vibrant tapestry of Hip Hop.
