Hip Hop

Street dancing in it's finest..
Hip Hop by Danzza Dance Studio

Hip hop dance refers to social or choreographed dance styles primarily danced to hip hop music. Hip hop includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking and popping which were developed in the 1970s by black and latino americans. What separates hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often freestyle and improvisational. 


More than 30 years old, hip-hop dance became widely known after the first professional breaking, locking, and popping crews formed in the 1970s. Internationally, hip-hop dance has had a particularly strong influence in many many countries ! 


To some, hip-hop dance may only be a form of entertainment or a hobby. To others it has become a lifestyle: a way to be active in physical fitness or competitive dance and a way to make a living by dancing professionally. 


There are several international hip-hop dance competitions, such as the Battle of the year, Hip hop international, Juste Debout, Notorious IBE and many more that offer competitors, which more often are crews, a chance to prove their abilities in hip hop dancing !
