HIP HOP

Hip Hop is under the dance category in the Health and Beauty Directory of South Africa.

Hip hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip hop music, that evolved from the hip hop culture. The main styles of hip hop dancing are breaking, locking and popping. The first dance accompanying hip hop was breakdancing. While breakdancing comprises principally of moves danced close to the ground, most hip hop moves are done standing up.

It is unique in that it allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities.Teens are particularly interested in learning how to dance like dancers they see on MTV and music videos and hip hop is becoming more and more common in dance schools around South Africa.

The entertainment industry has been largely responsible for introducing hip hop dance to mainstream audiences around the world. The first hip-hop films Wild Style, Beat Street, and Breakin' were made in the 1980's.
