What is Hip Hop?
Hip Hop Dancing originated in the United States in the early 1970s. There are many type of street styles associated with Hip Hop Dancing including breaking, krump, house dance and pop and lock. They all share the same elements of improvisation, creativity and a style and body movement unique to this style of dancing.
