Hot moves to cool music. Hip-Hop has the leading edge in popular dance. Video clips and reality dance shows turned Hip-Hop into a phenomenon. Danced to R&B, funk, rap, breakin’ and naturally, hip-hop music, it’s rhythmic, high-energy and totally electric.
Hip-Hop culture was born in the Bronx, New York during the 1970’s while at the same time a separate Funk culture was developing on the U.S. West Coast. In the 1980’s Hip-Hop and Funk were grouped together under the label of break-dancing. What’s generally referred to today as Hip-Hop is a hybrid of Funk, popping, locking, b-boying, b-girling, uprocking, boogaloo, crumping, and lyrical.
