Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture.
It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States.
At first, the hip-hop dance idea was ridiculed and seen as just another dance form from black folks acting the fool.
It was difficult to recognize hip-hop dance as text because it was discounted.
This beginner class is a fun way of learning creative and 'funky' dance moves. We will focus on basic and advanced level body movements.
Running shoes and comfortable clothing should be worn.
