Hip-Hop Dance History


The history of hip-hop is as layered and complex as the music that characterizes it. A true movement for the people by the people, hip-hop culture was created by the inventive MCs and DJs who still propel it today. Along with the pulsing masses and now famous dancers who made this style of expression their bread and butter, hip-hop’s evolution has been fueled by the mutual ambition between these two groups. Digging up the roots of this family tree is a messy task, filled with questionable credits and debatable dates. However, despite the historical uncertainties of this unique art form hip-hop has secured a place in the future of dance because of its ability to grow with and reflect the lives of those who perform it.
