Hip Hop is a dance style that originated from American hip hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breakdancing which began in the 1970’s and was made popular from dance crews. While breakdancing consists of moves close to the ground the majority of hip hop moves are performed standing up. Hip hop is more than a way of moving, it is a way of life..through its music, culture, and clothing.
Recently, modern hybrids of hip hop ( jazz funk, lyrical hip hop) have become popular in the entertainment industry.
At Have2Dance we teach a commercial hip hop style which would be considered unauthentic, but can provide a platform for students to feel connected to the current style and trend of the world.
We also offer authentic hip hop in workshops and open classes to students who are interested in discovering more about the ‘raw’ side of hip hop dance culture.
