Information About Hip-Hop, Club, and Street Dancing
Hip hop dance began on the streets in the 1960’s. It was a type of dancing that wasn't learned, it was meant for those who naturally and instinctively could move to music. It was inspired by African dancing. There are two main types of hip hop: West Coast and East Coast. West Coast is all about the popping and locking and the East Coast is all about the break dancing. American hip hop includes some of the West Coast and East Coast. Around the 1980’s, more people were getting into the rhythm of hip hop and it was becoming more popular. People would challenge each other to dance offs and there would be an audience circled around them. Club dancing and street dancing can be considered a part of hip-hop.
Hip hop has become really popular that it is actually shown on stage and in music videos. It is a dance that continues to expand.
This project will impact me by helping me improve my dancing skills. It also will have some health benefits such as: relieving stress and keeping my body active.
You can never be done learning, but when I'm a more experienced dancer I plan to make videos to teach others step-by-step how to hip-hop dance.
