Hip hop began its origins in the late 1960s. Many people and events have contributed to the development on the early hip-hop dance moves. The dance styles that were created in the 1970s include uprock, breaking and the funky styles. Breaking or break dance was created in The Bronx, New York and it incorporated dances that were popular in the 1960s and early 1970s in African-American and Latino communities. At the same time breaking was developing in New York, other styles of hip-hop were being created in California. The funk style refers to street dance styles such as roboting, bopping and locking to name a few.
The dance industry created a commercial, studio-based version of hip hop, also known as “new style” and a hip-hop-influenced style of jazz dance called “jazz funk.” It is the kind of hip-hop dance seen in rap, R&B, and pop music videos. These studio styles became so popular that it is the version practiced in dance studios today. At King Centre, our professional staff understands the movements and techniques of hip hop that it is always a top dance class being performed in our studios.
