History of Street Dance
As with all forms of modern popular dance, the evolvement and development of styles are largely influenced by current music trends and promos/videos. Street Dance has moved a long way since the birth of hip hop in the early 1980’s with many different styles now falling under the banner. The original funk and hip hop styles are now classified as “Old School” with the newer styles having a distinction in their own right.Discover more
