Hip Hop Showreel
History of Hip Hop dance
Unlike other dance forms which have evolved over centuries, this dance style which finds its roots in African dance forms gained popularity only in the 1970s. However, that did not stop Hip Hop from taking the world by storm. While most other dance forms were formal in nature, Hip Hop broke stereotypes and emerged as an informal dance style, performed on the streets of New York, where the crux was in creative expression rather than technique. Rhythm and complex movements were at the core of this dance form which researchers have described as a form of ‘postural semantics’ to convey a form of resistance from the youth residing in the economically repressed neighbourhood of the Bronx in New York. As Hip Hop evolved, Improvised dance sequences and dance battles became important components of the dance form.
Today Hip Hop is among the most popular dance forms with television, dance shows and social media being dominated by Hip Hop music and dance. Even kids today have displayed a fascination with this unique dance form. Turning Pointe has years of experience in teaching children Hip Hop and the nuances of locking, popping, tutting and breaking.
